Welcome Moorfield’s ASC Enhanced Resource Provision
Moorfield Resource Provision
What is the Moorfield Resource Provision?
The Moorfield Resource provision is a specialist resource provision within the grounds of Moorfield Primary School which caters for children who have an Austism Spectrum Condition.
It is staffed by a two full time teachers and 3 full time learning support assistants. The resource has places for 20 children and covers EYFS, KS1 & KS2 and is overseen by our Assistant Headteacher Mrs Lewis.
The resource is an integral part of the school and children join mainstream activities as part of their daily routines and transition programmes when appropriate but this transition is tailored to meet the individual needs of the children.
Children in the resource have an educational health care plan (EHCP). The curriculum is based on the Statuary Framework for Early Years, Key Stage 1 and KS2 National Curriculum, and is differentiated according to each child’s stage of development.
All children have a full assessment when they first come to the class and this is then used to plan their learning.
Each child follows their own programme and their progress is closely monitored through observations and more formal assessments. Targets are shared and reinforced on a daily basis and achievement rewarded.
For children accessing the mainstream school, their transition is carefully planned: children may join their peer group for lunchtimes, playtime and enrichment time when appropriate. As they progress the transition will build on their strengths, allowing them to join classes where they will experience success. Each stage will be monitored and taken at the child’s pace.
What are we learning in the Moorfield Resource Provision this half term?
The topics in the resource mirror those being taught in the mainstream classes.
Our topic links to English where we are learning new sounds every day, to develop communication, language, reading and writing skills. Please encourage your child to read every night regardless of whether it is their school reading book or not. Parents and carers are encouraged to write a comment in their reading record and ensure it is in school every day, so that we can track their progress. Reading provides so many opportunities and opens so many doors to a child’s learning.
In Maths this term, we will be exploring place value, number bonds, comparing numbers and counting.
Home school diaries: Please use these to communicate daily, even if it is just a couple of lines to tell us what kind of evening/sleep/breakfast time/weekend, your child has had.
