Our Learning Environment
The Academy is very proud of its specialist Learning and Intervention Zones.
The Learning Zone:
The Learning Zone is compiled of two classrooms designed to support the educational needs of SEN and vulnerable students in the Academy.
The learning zone can provide specialist IT equipment to support your child in overcoming barriers to learning. IT equipment is available to support children in accessing learning and achieving their full potential during assessments.
During break and lunch times the learning zone is open for students to play games and develop interaction and communication skills or to complete homework in a quiet and safe space.
It provides a quiet, safe working space at lunch time and for after school enrichment activities. These classrooms are used throughout the day for SEND support and intervention.
Adjacent to the Learning Zone, is our very own garden which has been created by our students and the National Trust, who run gardening enrichment with our students every week.
The Intervention Zone:
The intervention zone is a designated room in the Academy for workshops, interventions, 1:1 support and advice sessions.
The intervention zone serves all students but also provide targeted intervention for students with SEN and the most vulnerable students.
It is open at KS3 and 4 lunch times for students to seek support and advice about anything that is worrying them. Students can also spend lunchtimes in the Intervention Zone socialising with their peers and taking part in structured activities or attend drop-in sessions delivered by external organisations such as Free2be, Catch22 and Off the record.
