Paget Panthers

Welcome to Paget Panthers.

We are a small class of eight children and currently there are children from Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4, who all have ASD.

At Paget Primary School we recognise that some children with ASD can find the world confusing which can make school a challenge. Each child is an individual and it is our aim to equip them with specific strategies and support to promote their inclusion and reduce potential anxieties, so they can have a fun and enjoyable time at school. We follow the EYFS and National curriculum for all subjects which is broken down into small steps using a personalised approach, tailored to meet children's individual needs. We also use teaching approaches that are tailored to the individual pupils including TEACCH and structured teaching, social stories and visual support.

We have a lot of fun learning in Paget Panthers and we have a strong emphasis on personal development through practical activities such as cooking and gardening during Forest School sessions. The children take turns, act as waiters for their peers which helps to promote their social skills as well as their speaking and listening skills. They enjoy toast time as part of their daily routine.

The curriculum is weighted to address the social, communication and sensory needs of the pupils. Our classroom provides an 'ASD friendly' environment to ensure all pupils reach their full potential. All pupils are working towards integration into mainstream education when it is appropriate for them.

The staff in Paget Panthers are Mrs Paul (Class Teacher), Mrs Lovell (ASD Lead Practitioner and Class Teaching Assistant), Mrs Taylor (Teaching Assistant in the mornings) and Miss Holmes (Student Teaching Assistant and Class Lunchtime Supervisor) who joins us for different times during the week and every day at lunchtime.

We look forward to having an amazing and fun filled year, learning as we go, as part of Paget Panthers.
