The Bridge @ Murdishaw
Our Murdishaw provision is a small, quiet and calm classroom based in Murdishaw Community Centre. It is available specifically for those youngsters that benefit from an environment that has minimal pressures from social interaction and challenge. It provides a familiar small staff team who are calm, nurturing and consistently predictable in the way they operate and interact. Murdishaw is able to remove the anxiety of unstructured breaks times in a busy school environment, replacing those times with calm, peace and predictability. Students work at academic levels in line with their ability and previous learning, following a program that is individualised and reflective of their personal needs.
The provision is available those youngsters who need for a quiet, ‘non-school’ learning environment, yet who do not have medical confirmation of this need. If prior SEN assessment and identification have evaluated that this is the right type of support, then a placement can be accessed.
Canoeing on our outdoor education morning, great fun had by all!
