The learning journey for pupils at Yeoman Park Academy begins in the Primary Team at Early Years Foundation Stage moving through to key stages 1, 2 and the early years of key stage 3.
We aim to provide a stimulating, challenging and caring environment, which allows each child to develop to their full potential educationally, physically, socially and personally with communication and working towards independence at the core of our teaching.
The curriculum encompasses creative learning and developing thinking skills through structured play, functional activities and topic-based approaches.
The primary team
There are three classes in the primary unit catering for pupils with severe learning difficulties, autism, complex learning, physical, sensory and medical needs.
Pupils are grouped according to their learning styles with teachers and teaching assistants providing stimulating and exciting learning opportunities. Personal care assistants and a health care assistant are there to support learning and meet the personal and health care needs of all pupils.
