The school’s curriculum also tries to take into account the specific characteristics and special educational needs of individual pupils particularly those with emotional and behavioural difficulties, and those who are disaffected. Individual programmes of study are arranged for pupils with specific literacy and numeracy difficulties, as well as supporting those for whom English is a second language. Anger management and art therapy along with coping strategies are explored with each pupil in an effort to help them improve their self worth and enhance their learning and social skills. Each subject focuses on improving motivation, raising the self-esteem and confidence of our pupils; this in turn enhances their skills in making and sustaining appropriate social skills and presenting opportunities to demonstrate their achievements and success.
