Class Staff

Class Teacher- Lauren Barlow

Teaching Assistants- Angela Rimmer, Rachael Hough, Kath Young, Emma Molloy and Vicky Smith.


Elm class are a PMLD class covering all six of the curriculum areas; My Communication,  My Thinking, My Emotional Wellbeing, My Physical Development, My Community and How My World Works.

During each session all pupils will be working towards individual targets based on Quest, P Scales, Educational Health Care Plans, CSDs and ASDAN.


ASDAN is undertaken by pupils in Key Stage 3 and above and will be new to some of the pupils in Elm class this year. We will be working towards achieving credits in ‘Raising Aspirations’ and ‘Personal Progress.’ The work done towards these credits will be integrated into our everyday sessions.

For ASDAN Personal Progress we will be working on:

-Growing and caring for plants

-Encountering Experiences: Being a part of things

-Engaging with the world around you: Events



Happy New Year!

We hope you had a restful break and are ready for the Spring term!


This term's topic is 'My Heritage' and over the next 6 weeks we will be looking at Royalty.

We will take part in Sensology sessions with a range of new resources and our Sensory Story this half term is 'The Princess and the Frog.' We will be grooving along to a regal playlist during dance massage and will explore different instruments and ways to make sounds during our weekly music sessions with the wonderful Georgina.  During our story massage and shared reading sessions we will look at some poems and short stories such as 'If I Were a King,' and 'I'm a Little Princess.'

 We will work on developing our fine and gross motor skills during our craft sessions, using a range of resources and different techniques to make Union Jack flags, crowns, masquerade masks and stamps. Our cookery session recipes for this term include Queen Victoria Sponge Cake, Prince William's biscuit cake and High Tea.

Each Friday we will continue to publish our Elm Class Newspaper to keep you up to date on all that we have been doing during our busy week.



  • Swimming will take place on a Monday and Thursday, with each pupil swimming once per week. If you are unsure of your child's allocated swimming day please be sure to ask a member of the class team. Please ensure you send in your child's kit as we are very limited on spares in school and we do not want anybody to miss out on this valuable session.
  • We request a contribution of £2 per week to go towards purchasing items for our sensory food sessions. Any money should be sent into school in a clearly labelled envelope and can be paid on a weekly or half termly basis. We will send home what we have made for you to try and welcome your feedback!
  • Please be sure to keep us up to date with any important information via Class Dojo or the home/school communication books. We will be sure to do the same.


Don't forget to check our page regularly- we update it with information and photos weekly.



If you have any questions at all, message me using the Class Dojo app or contact the school office.
