Resource Unit

We are a dedicated team, supporting children with a variety of special needs.  Our specialist team celebrate the differences our children bring to the Resource and constantly strive to ensure that every child achieves their full potential.

Children in our Resource enjoy a nurturing and supportive environment where they can grow in confidence and develop essential life skills, but also achieve academically through a carefully planned curriculum.  We work closely with external specialists such as Speech and Language Therapy to ensure we are offering targeted support to meet their individual needs.

We value our parents and carers and actively strive to engage with our Resource community through our monthly themed coffee mornings and parent/carer workshops.

If you have any questions relating to our Resource, how Admissions to Resource work, or would like to arrange a visit to our Resource Unit, please contact Lindsey Hicks, SEN Manager at sen@prioryschool.com

If you are an existing parent and need to talk to our SENCo, please contact Emily Burgess at Emily.Burgess@prioryschool.com.

Resource timings for the day are slightly different to the rest of the school to accommodate a smooth drop off, daily structure and pick-up. Resource children start their school day at 8:30am and go home at 3:00pm Lunch times are staggered between classes starting from 11:30 onwards. Break times differ within each class as they all follow separate timetables specifically designed for that group of children. The learning timetables and length of learning activities are also dependent on the individual classes.
