About Glyne Gap School

Children and grown-ups playing tug o' warAims
We aim to teach children the knowledge, skills and confidence that will enable them to lead as full, normal and independent a life as possible.

Within the school and the community, we aim to provide a learning experience that is exciting and challenging. We aim to offer our children the same curriculum opportunities, at an appropriate level, as their brothers and sisters in mainstream schools.

For children who will always need others to help them meet their needs, we aim to give a means of making choices and friendships. We seek to provide the widest possible range of experiences, and to maintain and improve their physical abilities.

Two girlsWhat we believe
We believe that we must strive to make children successful in their learning, and that we can best do this by providing carefully structured programmes, by working closely with parents, and by making sure children's achievements are recognised and praised.

We believe that we must help young people to take charge of their own lives, become as independent as possible and learn to speak for themselves.

What We Teach

Playing in the sand pitA programme for each child
As a child passes through the school and develops, it could be said that s/he is climbing a ladder. Each step represents a skill, and the ladder is taking the child towards independence. Because each child is different, and has different strengths, the next step of the ladder to be worked on will be unique to them. For some the next step will be sitting, walking or pointing to a chosen toy, for others it may be cooking lunch or reading the sports page of a newspaper. To meet each pupil's needs, an individual programme of work is drawn up every term. This programme is usually a number of steps or goals that the pupil will work on and aim to achieve by the end of that term.

The National Curriculum
In addition to the above programmes, classes or groups will be working on topics or modules that provide exciting, stimulating and wider learning experiences. National Curriculum subjects pitched at an appropriate level will usually determine the content of these topics and modules.

Sand experimentsHealth Education (including sex education)
There is a health education syllabus that runs through the whole school, ensuring that knowledge is gradually built up over a period of years... so for example at five years old, children may be learning about washing hands, while at 19, students may learn about alcohol abuse. As well as this syllabus, individual needs will be met, as they arise, through individual programmes.

Activities outside the classroom
Besides out of school activities like swimming, horse riding and community activities, a large number of pupils spend some time in the school week working alongside mainstream school pupils. Many older students also take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, ASDAN Award Scheme and go on vocational (work) experience placements.
