Community Projects

Throughout the year students are given the opportunity to gain experiences to develop their knowledge and skills when accessing the local community. Students have built into their weekly sessions:-

—Personal and road safety in the community

—Money handling and responsibility

—Communicating in less familiar settings

—Making independent and group choices

—Experiencing leisure activities

—Using resources to facilitate daily living


Each half term, students choose from a variety of locations in the local area to visit and choose where they would like to purchase lunch. They can choose from a menu, use a self-service buffet or order from a waiter or waitress. Places we visit throughout the year are:-

—Restaurants & cafes

—Retail parks, town centres & shopping malls

—Country parks & recreational facilities

—Colleges & educational centres

—The Post Office & library
