Here at Sheridan School we offer places to young people who display a range of challenging and anti-social behaviour. Often our young people have been diagnosed as suffering from conduct disorder, emotional and behavioural difficulties, being developmentally delayed and having social and/or learning difficulties.
Small classes for tailored teaching
Our small class sizes (four to six children per class) ensure our young people get the support they need to learn effectively. Each class has a minimum of one teacher and one learning support assistant, with additional 1:1 support available for pupils who require it.
The school is split into three units: An autism specific unit, a primary unit and a secondary unit. The primary and secondary units are both further divided into four groups (according to ability, not age) as follows:
Hedgehogs / Dragonflies / Caterpillars
- Specialist autism provision
Keeping you informed
We understand the importance of keeping parents/carers up to date with their child’s progress. As a school, we pride ourselves on our frequent and open communication with parents/carers in the form of daily updates and a weekly report. Every Friday teachers prepare a weekly report for each young person, which is then sent out on a Monday morning to parents, carers, social workers and any other professionals involved in the care of that student. The report will not look at the young person’s academic progress that week, but also at attendance, any behavioural issues they may have had and anything else of note.
