We are an Enhanced Resource (ER) mainstream school, which means we offer specialist provision for children with physical impairments. We currently have five places within our ER, or Rainbow Class as it’s also known.
At Hilltop we believe in a person-centred approach to learning which recognises your child as a whole. We work hard to create close working relationships with you, your child, and the multidisciplinary teams involved in their progress, to ensure that learning takes place every day. This helps them to develop communication, emotional, social and physical skills.
We strive to be a school:
Pupils in Rainbow Class are supported in the main body of the school and are integrated into class alongside their peers. They take part in whole-school activities such as educational visits, celebrations and events.
Our staff are highly trained and dedicated members of the school team. They have years of experience in supporting children with Special Educational Needs. Over the years they have had on-going training in all aspects of child care and education, including medical intervention when needed. Our staff have developed professional working relationships with outside agencies to ensure we all work together to get the best outcome for all of our pupils.
The following areas of personalised learning take place either on a 1:1 basis or in small groups to develop social interaction and communication:
