Enhanced Provisions is provided at the school under the STEPS provision.
Steps Towards Excellence At Prendergast School
STEPS is the umbrella term our current provision project at Prendergast School. The STEPS team, managed by Mr Voros, looks at groups of learners across the school and matches them with the most appropriate provision or intervention that we provide.
The STEPS Team
The STEPS team co-ordinate to provide opportunities for learners depending on their individual need. This could be from data generated in assessments, tracking of pupil progress, information from teachers, parental request and of course, pupil request!
There are a wealth of opportunities available to learners through the STEPS programme:
o Hair and Beauty
· Nurture Activities
· John Muir Award
· Yoga and Mindfulness
· Read Write Inc 1-to-1
· Science Club
· Homework Club
· P4C Sessions
For Parents, we also run weekly “Drop-in” sessions. This gives parents a chance to talk about any questions they have in relation to additional needs their children may have, or a chance to share any concerns at home.
· “Wellbeing Wednesday” – Drop in with Mrs Morris on a Wednesday morning.
· “ALN Thursday” – Drop in with Mrs Dunlop to discuss Additional Learning Needs on Thursday mornings.
· “Forces Friday” – Drop in to our MOD Keyworker Mrs Reynolds on a Friday Morning.
We also run playgroups on a Monday and Wednesday morning for children under school age in the school hall. All Parents / Carers and children are welcome to make use of this time.
