Our Classes

Education ToolsAt Spring Hill High School, classes are organised for students to be taught in a personalised safe space. Classes are organised for either one to one teaching or small groups. One to one teaching and small groups enable students to develop trust in the staff and each other so that the behaviours that are preventing their progress in learning are diminished and more positive behaviours are practised.
Small Group Learning

Small Group Learning

Our school is for students who are able to access learning in small groups. The group size consists of no more than five students however, there is always a safe space for students to withdraw to.  This space can be accessed when the student feels that they need time outside of their group, for example, due to their own sensory needs, or when staff believe that their behaviour is impacting on the learning of others.  Students may also be taught outside of the group when 1:1 interventions are taking place.  Group learning is heavily supported by staff, and students have access to their own designated staffing level, both within group learning and should they need to withdraw.

Learning in PE Lessons

Most PE lessons are organised in groups based on an initial assessment by the PE department. Where students cannot access group PE, because of their risk assessment PE is taught following their personalised PE plan in their one to one arrangement.
