Specialist Approach to Learning

Methods that work

The specialist curriculum at LVS Hassocks recognises every child as individual and will enable your child to realise their full potential.  Through research with health and educational specialists, employers and parents, we have developed teaching and learning methods to help young people with learning difficulties - such as autism, Asperger’s and dyslexia - strategies for life and learning, which in the long term will give them the opportunities and skills for successful employment.

We achieve this through the following learning methods:

  • Whole Health Learning - focuses on a healthy eating, exercise, massage and relaxation helping students develop strategies for managing times of increased anxiety.
  • Connected Learning - a learning approach that helps students to make sense of their experiences and develop strategies for success in all areas of their life.
  • Real World Learning – this area of the specialist curriculum focuses on employability, providing our young people with strategies to get a job and sustain work.  
  • World Knowledge - student horizons are broadened with an awareness of the world around them.
  • Vocational Skills and Qualificationsstudents learn practical working skills for employment, often supported by nationally recognised qualifications.
Ofsted comment

'The adoption of a range of appropriate practical and academic courses ensures all students are afforded the opportunity to gain nationally accredited qualifictions that recognise and record their progress and achievement throughout their school career.'
