Welcome to Lower Evergreens (LEGS)
The Lower Evergreen Class is primarily our Key Stage 4 class. Students are therefore usually between fourteen and sixteen years of age. This year there are ten amazing students in the Lower Evergreen Class.
During their time in the Lower Sixth Form these students will continue their accreditation journey and their personal pathways that prepare the learners for their next stage, namely the post 16 provision that is best suited to meeting the students' individual needs.
Students learning at pathway 3 and 4 will develop key functional skills in maths and English by studying differentiated ASDAN Short Courses in English and Maths. Learners will also follow ASDAN short courses to gain experiences in a range of foundation subjects. This means that we are able to offer a nationally recognised accreditation in wider curriculum areas and key life skills opportunities (Further details are available in the attached documents below).
Students learning at Pathway 1 and 2 are offered a child centred approach to learning where skills linked to the preparation for adulthood areas within the EHCP are embedded within the whole learning experience, ensuring that these students are prepared for their next stage. Nationally recognised certification in English and Maths is also offered, through the use of the ASDAN 'Towards Independence' course.
All students will also access opportunities linked to work related learning, including individual work experience.
Welcome back to the Autumn Term.
We have an exciting term of learning planned both in school and for some of our learners, at home.
To support our learners in their transition back to school/home learning we have started with an emphasis on promoting health, wellbeing, establishing routines and boosting numeracy and literacy skills. We have achieved this while exploring the them of 'Time Capsules', which have allowed learners to reflect on the current situation, while looking to the future.
We will be continuing with themes that promote positivity, including:
- Feel Good News Reports in English
- Creative arts that impact on feelings
- Maths games
- Creating E-newsletters in Computing
- The positive impact of exercise on health and wellbeing
- Learning to prepare a meal to be shared as part of a feast
We are really looking forward to being able to work with learners and families at home in exciting new ways. Our remote learners at home will be supported to join in with learning linked to these themes, using work packs (sent home weekly) and presentations on the school web page. There will also be daily TEAMS meeting where learners can share their achievements and receive feedback about learning opportunities that follow on from these achievements. The most up to date remote learning activities will appear near the top of the web page.
If you have any questions about the learning both in school or remote, please do not hesitate to get in touch either on the email below, or by contacting the school by phone.
Look at Grace's beautiful video. She has been inspired to learn something new and create signs for some of her favourite songs. Wow!

Class Update Friday 20th March
We have had a really unusual couple of weeks in the Lower Evergreens. Lots of staff and students have been off school and people have been feeling worried about the Coronavirus.
In class we have Persevered and stayed positive, which Rachel demonstrates beautifully in the video below.
Enjoy the video and we hope it makes you feel a bit happier.
Here are some more examples of us being brave!
