Welcome to Poppy Class
'In this world, we are not perfect. We can only do our best.' Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah
An ARB is an Additional Resource Base for children with a range of individual needs as detailed in their Education, Health and Care Plans.  No day is ever the same in Poppy Class, we all learn something new with and from one another.  We have a superb team of experienced staff and equally amazing pupils and together we enjoy a wide range of learning experiences including: laughing, communicating, reading, observing, counting, listening, exploring, choosing, sorting, moving, playing, sharing, discovering, persisting, dancing, climbing, jumping, bouncing, balancing, helping.
We are extremely thankful for the support of our pupils' parents/carers/guardians and like to keep regular daily contact with them during the school term.  
In addition, we place a great emphasis on the fundamental importance of our partnerships with a wide range of external services that further support our pupils including speech and language, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.
A selection of our highlights during each school week include circle time song choices, relaxing in the sensory room, exploring the garden, movement to music, PE, sensory exploration and a range of other learning activities designed to meet and challenge the individual needs of our pupils.
The progress and achievements of our pupils are monitored throughout the school year using clear and concise assessments that are both accessible and developmentally appropriate. 
Assessment indicators include:
  • Early Years Developmental Journal
  • B-Squared 'Engagement Steps' and 'Progression Steps' (previously 'P-Levels')
  • Pre-Key Stage Standards
  • Engagement Model Observations
  • Primary Impact Trackers
These judgements are further evidenced through 'Tapestry' photo and video learning journeys that can be accessed instantly online by parents/carers/guardians.
Take a look at our most recent parent / carer curriculum letter for further information about what your child will be learning this half term.
