ESC (Enhanced Support Class)

 

The Enhanced support Class has been established to support a wide range of learning needs for our children. We encourage the children to become more independent and strive to do their very best.

There is a high provision of adult support currently within our two ESC classes where there is a more practical approach to delivering the curriculum.

Numbers in each of these classes are lower than the average class so that greater emphasis can be given on focused Numeracy and Literacy target work to help children achieve and be successful in their own learning.

The programme of work offered is in line with the National Curriculum expectations appropriate to the age group they are working within.
