Welcome to Atlas Class
Atlas class is one of three Social Communication/ Complex Needs Resource Base classes at Studley Green school.
Mrs Osborn is the class teacher, with Mrs Masters, Mrs Grieve, Miss Henley and Mrs Collett who are the Learning Support Assistants.
Children's learning is broadly based around a highly differentiated EYFS or KS1 curriculum and through a variety of methods specifically matched to each child's individual special need.
Communication is key to all our learning, so Makaton is an integral part of our daily 'language' used by all staff to support all children. Individuals may often have Speech & Language programmes, which will be delivered by Mrs Grieve in the class, or embedded within the class work during the week.
We also use visual timetables and visual supports, such as PECS as well as Attention Autism activities and Social Stories to aid comprehending everyday social situations.
Individual 'hands-on' learning through sensory experiences are also key to helping our children build on their learning at a pace that they can access and we aim to ensure all children experience success in their efforts.
We do our utmost to support and extend children's skills and help them explicitly make connections with each step of their learning, whether for academic or everyday life.
