At Lyng Primary we pride ourselves on being an inclusive and welcoming school where children mix happily and all children are fully accepted into school life by staff and their peers.
The Hive is a purpose built space that our children with individual support can access during the morning session. During this morning session, children will have access to specialist equipment to meet their needs and have time to focus on important life skills, problem solving and communication as well as English and Maths skills. At Lyng Primary we celebrate all children’s differences and abilities and we understand that all children have individual needs and talents. The Hive gives us scope to develop a curriculum that is based around the 7 principles of the Rochford Review (2016) The curriculum will have deep roots in discovery, responsiveness, curiosity, anticipation, persistence, initiation and investigation. The children will then access the foundation subjects in class in the afternoon with their peers to ensure inclusivity.
The Hive staff are all suitably trained and are passionate about supporting our children with SEN. All staff have received training in Autism, Intensive Interaction, PECS and Social Stories. The staff also have a deep knowledge of how visual resources such as visual timetables, now and next boards, choice boards and communication aids can have a positive effect on children with SEN.
