Welcome to Key Stage 1, 2 & 3 and the Rainbow rooms at Heltwate Special Needs School

We have approximately 115 pupils within the lower school working within Key Stage 1, 2, 3. All of the classes follow the Cornerstones thematic curriculum which is adapted to suit the needs of the individual pupils in each class/Key stage. There are 5 classes in Key Stage 1 and 2 (Violet, Blue, Pink, Purple and Jade and 3 classes in Key Stage 3 (Coral, Yellow and Green). Within lower school we have 4 classes that are Autism Specific (Rainbow 1, 2, 3, 4). These rooms are for pupils that have a high level of needs and benefit for further structure and routine and enhanced communication methods.
All of the students are encouraged to reach their full potential and be the best that they can be. Support is given by our dedicated team to ensure that they reach their full potential in their personal and social development as well as their academic ability.
