Primary aged pupils with an Education Health Care Plan
Gilbrook provides a highly structured and supportive environment to meet the needs of pupils with a range of complex difficulties, including autism, which impact on their behaviours.
Pupils are taught in 7 small classes with a high staff/pupil ratio which aims to ensure that all pupils have support to manage their behaviours and are able to access the curriculum. The school encourages and supports all pupils to manage their problem behaviours and operates a behaviour modification approach which emphasises positive achievements and raises self esteem.
All pupils follow the national curriculum and make significant achievements. Gilbrook works with mainstream schools to support a return to mainstream education, where appropriate.
Gilbrook School values the relationship with parents/carers and works very closely with them and with many agencies. Parents/carers are supported by Gilbrook’s full time Home School Liaison Officer who ensures there is consistent and continued support for the many additional needs that pupils may have both in school and at home.
Gilbrook leads an outreach service providing support and advice to all Wirral mainstream primary schools, with the management of children displaying challenging behaviours. This can include Supporting pupils Mental Health needs, advising on appropriate environments and approaches to teaching of pupils on the Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and appropriate differentiation for pupils with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN).
