Nurture. Support. Aspire. Achieve.


Welcome to Newstead Class

Our Class Ethos

Newstead is one of our Primary Curriculum Stage 1 learning pathways. In Newstead we are following a bespoke sensory based learning curriculum. The students access most of their learning in their own classroom. Our continuous provision enables pupils to learn though play and develop their play skills. Adult-led activities are carried out either on a one-to-one basis or in small group in a separate work area. Regular opportunities for outdoor learning are also encouraged, which includes forest schools and learning in the outdoor areas. 


We are a class of 9 learners, our youngest is 4 and eldest is 11.


Each school day begins with an interactive 'Hello' session in which we share the timetable, welcome everyone to the class and identify our feelings. A creative and multi-sensory approach to learning is adopted across all subjects and is well-supported by the use of signs and symbols.  

By providing a fun, safe and engaging environment the students in Newstead are enabled to succeed and achieve.



Important class information

As part of our curriculum pathway we will be accessing learning activities outside; please send wellies, waterproofs, spare clothing to support this for the school year.

- Forest school is on a Tuesday from the start of the Spring term.
