Home Learning

On this page, the SEN team will be adding items for those who may want some additional support for their children. We want to ensure that the pupils are supported as best as possible, although home learning is not mandatory at our school we like to provide parents with the option.

Please feel free to email the SEN team on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., if you feel something could be added that would be beneficial.

Each tab will have different areas identified with different activities to download.

Please obtain your child’s username and password from the class teacher to access the learning platforms.

Pupils and young people with cognition and learning difficulties will learn at a slower pace than other pupils. They may have greater difficulty than their peers in acquiring literacy and numeracy skills, or in understanding concepts, even with appropriate differentiation.

Social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs are a type of special educational needs in which pupils/young people have severe difficulties in managing their emotions and behaviour. They often show inappropriate responses and feelings to situations. This means that they have trouble in building and maintaining relationships with peers and adults; they can also struggle to engage with learning and to cope in the classroom without additional strategies and interventions. Pupils with SEMH will often feel anxious, scared and misunderstood.

Please see the files below for resources to support emotional and mental health:
