Teaching & Learning

The children at Maple Ridge thrive in the calm, structured and secure environment and they always seem to be enjoying their learning. All the children at Maple Ridge have a learning difficulty and will have a range of special educational needs.

 

We aim to meet  the individual needs of each child through:

 

  • the commitment and support of all staff and governors
  • appropriate differentiation of the curriculum to meet all levels of ability
  • positive attitudes and encouragement from staff
  • an atmosphere of support in which self confidence can grow
  • close involvement of parents/carers with their child’s learning
  • an individual education plan for each pupil
  • group educational plans for literacy and numeracy
  • use of a range of approaches for pupils with ASD, including *TEACH* Treatment and Education of Autistic and related communication Handicapped children-adults.

 

In addition a proportion of the classes are set up specifically for children who have Autistic Spectrum disorder and they aim to provide the following:

 

  • A low arousal environment
  • Highly structured activities fully supported by visual cues
  • Individualised motivators and choice boards that reward appropriate behaviour
  • A curriculum that allows for greater individualisation and gives emphasis to children’s personal and social development.
