Paget Panthers

Hello and welcome to Panthers.

We are a small class of children and currently there are children from Year 1 to Year 6, who all have a primary diagnosis of 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.

Throughout their time in Panthers we aim to ensure that the children are exposed a range of experiences to ensure that the whole child is developed and that their individual needs are catered for.

We follow the EYFS and National curriculum where appropriate, which is broken down into small steps using a personalised approach. The lesson plans are tailored to meet the individual children’s needs, supporting language and social skills. We use teaching approaches including TEACCH, structured teaching, social stories and visual support.

We have a lot of fun learning in Panthers and we have a strong emphasis on personal development through practical lessons that promote independence and life skills, such as cooking.

The staff in Paget Panthers are Mrs Warner (Class Teacher responsible for curriculum learning), Mrs Lovell (ASD Teacher responsible for EHCP and ITP targets), Miss Holmes (Teaching Assistant full time) and Miss Cerrone (Teaching Assistant part time). The Panthers staff will also support the children at break and lunchtime.

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