Welcome to Arran!
Welcome to Arran Class
Hello and welcome to Arran class!
We are based in the FE Campus building and are a mixed year group, consisting of five students.
We follow a bespoke curriculum and work on functional skills, out of classroom learning, arts and crafts sessions, yoga and relaxation, sensory sessions and daily meal prep. When the students reach Year 14, we try and work closely with external agencies and families and start looking at the transition out of St Andrews and in to their post 19 Provision.
We work very closely on the range of targets set in their EHCP and we try and offer a broad and balanced curriculum that prepares them for their next steps, but one that is also fun, engaging and suits their individual needs.
We had a great time in Matlock Bath for our summer trip. We caught the train from Derby Station and enjoyed a snack whilst going through all the tunnels. The students had fun on the park, walking around and having an ice cream. The best part was sitting in the sunshine eating our fish and chips!
PSHE - All About Me!
We have been learning about ourselves, our likes and dislikes and who are the important people in our lives. For the topic, we looked at gender and enjoyed sharing photos of our families and identifying our friends in Campus. Then we learnt about strangers and the importance of keeping ourselves safe, which we will continue this term.
