Wansbeck Resource Base

The Behaviour Support Provision has been created as part of HCAT’s commitment to the pupils in its care. HCAT do not want any child to be excluded and the provision works with children who are in danger of this. The Provision has been placed at Wansbeck Primary School due to the Trusts assessment that the School is committed to supporting good practise in behaviour management and embodies the wider inclusive vision of HCAT. The Team based in the provision work with the young people who attend, and the Schools that they come from, to identify the best pathways to improve their Social, Emotional, Mental Health and Educational outcomes. The staff in the provision represent the ethos of Wansbeck Primary School and are part of the wider Wansbeck School Community. Children who attend the Wizards complete work linked to their EHCP targets within core academic lessons and bespoke SEMH lessons. Children are also working towards AQA certificates that cover a wide range of areas promoting life skills. 

The ASD base (opened at Wansbeck September 2020) aims to provide those pupils, who are struggling to access a mainstream classroom, the structure they need to begin to access their learning. It aims to develop their independence skills and targets areas for intervention to support pupils to achieve. The learning environment in structured and bespoke to the individual child, we also have the use of a new sensory room to develop sensory and emotional regulation.
