Welcome to Explorers 4

Helo, Mrs Payne ydw i. I am the class teacher in Explorers 4. We are a local authority specialist provision for children aged 4-7 with social and emotional difficulties. We are based in Abercanaid so that the pupils can feel part of a school and have the opportunity to play and interact with lots of mainstream children.

As well as being in charge of Explorers 4, I am also Additional Learning Needs Coordinator (ALNCo). This means that I am responsible for identifying, managing and monitoring additional support that pupils across the school receive in order to support their learning.

I love all aspects of my job, but especially working with pupils and parents.
