Briarwood Primary Department
The Primary department meets the needs of children from 5 – 11 years through Key Stages 1 and 2. We aim to create a safe, caring environment in which everyone is healthy, happy and ready to learn. The majority of pupils come from Briarwood Pod; however we do welcome pupils from a range of other settings (see admissions policy).
We are an ever growing department with eight classes in total. Our building includes two P.E. halls, an AV sensory room, a dark room for pupils with VI/HI needs, a soft play room and a library. Recently we have benefited from the new Post 16 build on site. Primary pupils are able to use these facilities for cookery and such events as theatre productions and Christmas dinner.
We are looking forward to our exciting new playground design in 2017.
The Primary department supports transitions for pupils from a nursery setting to more formal schooling and gets them ready for Secondary, as young adults. We continue to develop the thread of learning started in early years and prepare pupils for becoming young adults as they move to secondary provision.
We cater for pupils with a range of needs (SLD, ASD, and PMLD) and we respond to these needs through a wide range of teaching approaches.
