Welcome to Dolphins Class

In Dolphins class we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and all learning is very much interlinked. We plan some adult led activities but our pupils have freedom to also self-select their own learning and activities and staff follow ‘In the moment planning’ Pupils have their own personalised activities for individual Speech and language therapy and EHCP targets. We learn through ‘play’ with a big emphasis on global communication- signing, speech, expression, symbols.
