Integrated Resource - The Hive

SEND Integrated Resource (The Hive)

St Thomas of Canterbury Primary School has an Integrated Resource (IR), called The Hive, which provides additional support for 18 children with a Primary need of complex physical disabilities. There may be a Secondary need for cognition and learning difficulties.

All children in The Hive have an EHC Plan. They are provided with a place in The Hive following consultation between the Local Authority SEN team and parents. All places in The Hive are allocated by the Local Authority.

The Hive aims to meet the individual needs of each child through providing an adapted and engaging curriculum in a calm, nurturing learning environment. The National Curriculum is adapted as required to meet the needs of the children. Assessment tools such as Locke and Beech Early Years Profile and the Birmingham Toolkit are used to measure progress and attainment in small steps. The Hive classroom is located within the main school building. It has a purpose built toilet for children with physical disabilities with a hoist and a shower.

Our aim is for children with an I.R placement to spend some time learning with their mainstream peers in the mainstream class. The time spent in their mainstream class is dependent on their individual needs and is likely to vary over their time at school.

Please contact our Senco, Kate Heaton, for further details.
