We offer a specialist, individually tailored curriculum that meets the learning and developmental needs of each child.
We provide this within an integrated setting, where each young person can learn alongside their peers at a pace which suits their needs.
Our Star Room children have the opportunity to engage in learning in our mainstream setting, supported by a specialist teacher, teaching assistant or working independently as appropriate for each child.
The amount of time that each child will spend in The Star Room or The Discovery Room is child specific and is continually reviewed.
