Longcause Community Special School Learning for Life

The organisation of teaching and learning in the primary phase is embedded to ensure that the quality of teaching and learning across the whole school continues to be at least good

  • Increased number of adults trained 
  • Increased number of classes using a TEACCH approach. All primary classes are now following this approach. Half of middle school classes are now following the same approach. Within the middle school, there are now key pupils who also use the approach. 
  • Increased number of classes within Primary Phase. 
  • Objective on school improvement plan to maintain high priority and focus. There is an increased collaboration between Middle and Lower School through sharing good practice. Over the year staff from Lower and Middle school will participate in 'staff swaps' 3 times per year, lasting for one week per cycle. Our intention is to share good practice, increase continuity for pupils as they transition through the school and increase staff development in using a wider range of strategies and interventions.
