Glade Provision

Glade Provision Overview 


For students with learning difficulties and additional complex needs. Students typically work within the 5 areas of engagement to GV7 and work within the Grove, Orchard or Forest learning pathways. Students require a high level of structure and routine throughout the day. They focus on the development of skills such as communication, behaviour, emotional regulation, engagement, initiation and generalisations.  




Students have full access to the National Curriculum which is differentiated to meet the needs of each individual learner, 


Students learn through different activities and experiences in all subject areas. They will develop skills in the following areas: 

  • Communication – symbol/verbal communication 

  • Emotional regulation – sensory circuits etc.  

  • Engagement – persistence, concentration.  

  • Initiation - during social structured activities, creative arts etc.  

  • Transitions – moving around the school. 

  • Generalisation – functional skills  

  • Independence – e.g. structured learning approach  


Students will learn skills using a structured approach and be supported to transfer these skills into other situations.  


Social communication and interaction groups – mixed ability communication groups provide students weekly opportunities to interact with the peers. Activities include call and response, and the use of AAC for example switch work, 


Students with sensory difficulties follow a daily sensory diet which may include sensory circuits.
