Welcome to Elmwood!

Elmwood Class is a predominantly Year 8 Key Stage 3 class. In Elmwood, we aim to deliver a stimulating and exciting curriculum, tailored to meet the needs of each individual member of the class.




Our activities are centered around developing pupils’ communication and independence skills and we encourage all of our pupils to make a meaningful contribution to school life, according to their interests and abilities. Our lessons always involved an individualised approach with lots of fun and meaningful resources!

Literacy within KS3 uses aspects of the Balanced Literacy approach to develop pupils’ reading, writing and spelling, with our learning focused on a high quality book of the week.

In KS3 we continue to focus on numeracy as a core subject, as well as moving towards functional maths. This includes mathematical thinking across the curriculum such as food technology and music, promoting transferable skills to be used in everyday situations and the world of work.


At KS3 we develop pupils’ knowledge and skills in all curriculum areas, through a creative, topic based approach.  As part of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) we encourage children to understand their emotions and the importance of friendships.

Pupils in Elmwood class have the opportunity to attend a local gymnastics club and swimming at a local leisure centre, or in our school pool. Elmwood also experience Food Technology lessons and enjoy choosing what they would like to make each week.

In Elmwood pupils love helping each other and working together in a team to achieve their goals. Pupils like to help with all the jobs around the classroom, especially handing out snack and lunch to all their friends!
