Welcome to the Midford!
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.
Midford staff include:
Joanna Viranyi - Class teacher & Strategic Head of resource bases at St Nicholas school
We work closely with the School SENCo Helen Crossen.
Please can your child bring their book bag. If they would like to have break-time tuck with Key stage 2, please send in money for a tuck card.
MONDAY - please bring in PE kits (these will remain in school until Friday)
TUESDAY - swimming lesson (children swim for 2 terms each)
FRIDAY - please bring in Times times folders and spelling folders as we will be checking the children's progress.
Each child has the opportunity to read individually with an adult at least twice each week. If you would like to have a reading book to share with your child at home, please just let a member of the Midford team know.
Here are some photographs to show you some of what we get up to!
