Resource Base Update
Hazel Grove Resource Provision supports just over 20 young people who have both significant learning disabilities and physical disabilities. Stockport and partners are developing a brand-new purpose-built school for young people with such needs to bring together expertise from across the area. This secondary school will be called Pear Tree and is opening in 2023. While we are very proud of the work we collectively do to support our students, the current Hazel Grove Resource Provision will not be taking new students going forward.
We want to stress that this will not impact children currently in the Hazel Grove Resource Provision. They will continue to remain at Hazel Grove with the same level of support, throughout their school career.
We appreciate that any change brings with it questions, and hope that this provides some clarity. If you would like to discuss this further, then please let us know.
We believe that every student, regardless of background or circumstance, should be given an equal opportunity to become the best that they can possibly be. We are committed to ensuring that our students develop the skills and competencies necessary to prepare them for adulthood and life beyond school. We place a strong emphasis on the development of social skills and emotional intelligence in order to ensure that we are successful in this aim.
Our Resource Centre caters for students with an EHCP for complex learning needs. Students in our Resource Centre need a highly specialised curriculum with a large emphasis on independent living and work based skills. Our students will study alternative qualifications to our mainstream GCSE curriculum and will work as part of a small group for a large part of their timetable. Students in our Resource Centre will attend some mainstream lessons with a high level of support and differentiation within the classroom. We provide personalised intervention programmes to target the specific needs of each student. This may include therapeutic work from speech therapy or physiotherapy and bespoke literacy intervention where appropriate.
We work closely with students, parents/carers and teachers to:
- Create an environment in which students with SEND can fulfil their potential
- Enable students with SEND to function as independently as possible within the school environment and the outside world
- Create a partnership in which the school, home and other agencies work together for the benefit of students with SEND
- Ensure that the needs of our students are well identified and understood
