3 Dimensions School

Special needs catered for

3 Dimensions School is an independent special school for 16 pupils aged 7 to 25, providing Key Stage 2 up to secondary and post 16 education. All pupils have a Special Educational Need as their primary need, as well as sensory and nurturing needs. Students generally arrive with a history of poor attendance, placement gaps and exclusions from school and have therefore missed (often hugely significant) periods of education.

Specialist facilities

The curriculum is enhanced through:

• Forest School

• Outdoor education

• Expressive arts

• Arts and Crafts

• Community participation skills

• Home skills

• Basic living skills

• Vocational Skills

• Independent living skills

• A social thinking curriculum

Support services provided

Our whole curriculum is written to meet the aims of our pupils with SEN and we aim for each and every one of our pupils to achieve their potential.

We provide challenging, motivating and stimulating learning opportunities which enhance success and personalise the students learning. We focus on positive emotional health and well-being to ensure success for each pupil.

The curriculum – academic, social, moral and spiritual – aims to develop the full potential of all facets of the pupil and recognises and celebrates the individual’s worth and contribution to the school community.

We aim to teach our pupils how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they are enabled to become valued and a valuable member of their communities. We design individualised learning plans that enables our students to develop:

• Emotional Wellbeing

• Effective means of communication

• Willingness and readiness to learn

• Social and life skills

• Behaviour for learning

• Self-esteem
