Welcome to the Learning Hub!
The Learning Hub provides an alternative curriculum tailored to the needs of each individual learner. Sessions in the Learning Hub are teacher-led and those children who attend benefit from a high level of adult support.
Those pupils who attend the Learning Hub as part of our Resourced Provision have access to the following:
- Speech and Language orientated activities
- Relaxation Sessions – breathing exercises, massage, meditation, etc
- Motor Skills Sessions (gross & fine)
- A range of sensory stimuli including access to a sensory room, the delivery of sensory circuit and sensory exploration sessions
- Weekly P.S.H.E / SEAL / Social Story sessions
- Life Skills Sessions: food preparation, personal hygiene, safety in the home, etc
Children who attend the Learning Hub also have the opportunity bi-annually to attend a residential trip which focuses on developing the whole child.
Learning Hub news...
My name is Eva. Today, I have been doing my work in the Hub. This is my first blog post. Being in the Hub makes me happy. I like carpet time, we get to listen to stories.
This term our current topic is all about helping others near and far. We have already started to focus on and recognise people that help us and as a class have decided how we can help the homeless through our resilience project. We will be exploring gospel values further this term as well as developing our understanding of Christmas story.

This term as part of our curriculum we have been focusing on people who help us and in turn looked at how we can help others who are in need in our local community. As a group we decided it was time to give back and looked at what skills we had to offer.
Over the last six weeks the children have taken part in cookery sessions and have learnt an array of new skills. As a class we decided that we would like to help the homeless and we could do so by making soup to give to ‘The Sisters of Mercy’ who could use it in their weekly soup kitchen. The children decided on using seasonal produce to make a perfect pumpkin soup!
Below are some pictures we would like to share with you:

We hope all who received our soup enjoyed it!
The staff in the Learning Hub would like to wish all of our new and existing pupils a big welcome back. The Learning Hub re-opened for the academic year 2016-2017 on Thursday 8th September, having allowed pupils who attend the Learning Hub a few days to settle into their mainstream classrooms and meet their new class teachers and support assistants.
This year promises to be as jam-packed as the last and will allow the children to extend existing skills further in all areas. The children will have the opportunity this year to access a range of activities in the Learning Hub as well as additional sessions delivered by specialist providers such as Apple of my Eye, L.F.C and Forest School.
We are looking forward to watching your children flourish and sharing this journey with you the parents and carers.
Dates for coffee mornings and trips out to follow in the coming weeks!!
