Forest Pathway at Southgate.

Introduction

Pupils in the Forest Pathway require a greater focus on their communication and interaction.

 In most cases, this will be their primary need and will be a significant part of their provision. These pupils have a high level of complex needs. Some of these pupils will require specialist staff skills to support their sensory and physical needs.

These pupils benefit from a more semi-formal approach to learning. Our Semi-Formal Curriculum provides a combination of structured learning activities, life skills, hands-on practical discovery, intensive interaction, and learning through play.

Pupils respond better where learning is set up to be more functional and related to their own experiences.

Most pupils in this pathway will access practical accreditations which enable them to be as independent as possible and move on to further study an appropriate post-16 provision.
