For students with Learning Difficulties and additional complex needs. Students typically work from 5 areas of engagement-GV7. 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. Many of these young people have additional complex behavioural needs. We only have a limited, small number of spaces for such young people as they require a separate provision from the rest of the school.
