We are fortunate at Springwell to now have three resourced provisions at mainstream schools in the city. At Bitterne CE Primary we have Willow Class, at Mount Pleasant Junior School we have Packham class and at Mason Moor Primary we have Mian Class.
Each of our Resourced Provisions are staffed with a qualified teacher and excellent support from Special School Assistants all of whom are very experienced in teaching children with a wide range of complex and additional needs. Pupils in Willow, Packham and Mian classes benefit from 1:1, paired or small group teaching and learning experiences where activities are tailored to meet the individual needs of the pupils. Pupils in the provisions wear the uniform of the host school and are included in all aspects of the school life. Staff work hard to ensure that all pupils in our provisions identify themselves as being a part of both their host school and Springwell.
Based at Bitterne CE Primary, Willow class is currently providing exciting and engaging learning opportunities for pupils in Key Stage 1. Pupils access their learning in a calm and engaging environment following the same strategies, structure and curriculum used on the main site. Pupils currently access playtimes, lunchtimes and assemblies with their mainstream peers, this will begin to be extended to include music, PE and Golden Time when the class team feel that it is appropriate. Willow class are very much a part of Bitterne CE Primary and are included in all aspects of school life e.g. fundraising events, celebrations and festivals. Willow class also regularly access the wonderful facilities at Springwell main site, including the hydrotherapy pool and wonder room.
Based at Mount Pleasant Junior School, Packham class provides exciting and engaging learning opportunities for pupils in Key Stage 2. Pupils access their learning in a structured and engaging environment following the same strategies, structure and approaches used on the main site. Pupils access playtimes, lunchtimes and assemblies with their mainstream peers along with some foundation subjects following the mainstream curriculum. The pupils join a mainstream class for some of the foundation subjects supported by staff from the provision, mainstream planning is differentiated by the Packham class teacher so that the pupils can access the learning opportunities. Packham class are also very much a part of Mount Pleasant School and are included in all celebrations, events and trips offered to their mainstream classes. They also regularly access the facilities at Springwell main site, including the hydrotherapy pool and wonder room.
Based at Mason Moor Primary, Mian class is a Resourced Provision for Key Stage 2 pupils. English and Maths are taught within Mian class, reflecting the engaging and structured environment of a Springwell class. Pupils are supported during the afternoon by provision staff as they access the mainstream curriculum. Planning from the mainstream classes is differentiated by Mian class teacher as appropriate to ensure that each pupil can access the learning and progress in their learning and understanding. Mian pupils are fully integrated into the mainstream school life and, supported by Springwell staff, they join their mainstream peers for all assemblies, special events and class/educational trips etc.
We pride ourselves on the positive relationships we have with the children and their parents or carers and this is evident in the very positive feedback we have from parents and many past pupils come back to visit when they are able.
