A Day in Midford Class

Welcome to Midford class!
We are a resource base which operates alongside the mainstream part of St Nicholas school.  The base is for Key Stage 2 children who have been diagnosed with Attachment difficulties. Many of our children also have specific learning needs.  We have a high staff to child ratio so that we can provide the individual support that the children need. 
Our main aim is to support the children with their emotional needs, accessing the curriculum where appropriate.  Many of our children do access mainstream lessons.
The children are involved in the daily life of St Nicholas School, joining with their mainstream peers for playtimes and lunchtimes as appropriate.  We also attend whole school assemblies, activities and we are involved with school productions.  
We have fantastic facilities, including a large outdoor space, a 'cool down room', a Midford garden area and a sensory space.  We also have access to all of the school facilities including the hall, woodland area, library and Food Technology room. Three children have the opportunity to swim each term in a private pool with a specialist swimming teacher. 
The Midford is Resource Base for Key Stage 2 children.  Our curriculum reflects the mainstream curriculum but we work on a four year cycle. The Curriculum is adapted for the needs of the individual children as necessary.
