Dawn House School

Interactive Bar


Within the Junior class at Dawn House we cater for a range of pupils from upper Key Stage 2 to lower Key Stage 3. This group is to support pupils who aren't quite ready for our main school experience and benefit from having more consistency in relation to their teacher and classroom environment. 


Our team of experienced staff work closely together to create a happy and nurturing environment where children settle quickly, are valued as individuals, but are also encouraged to develop the skills to become confident and successful members of the school community.


We work within the structure of the National Curriculum, providing experiences that reflect a whole range of learning styles and abilities. In the core subjects of Maths and English children are taught according to their needs and undertake national testing where appropriate. Foundation subjects are taught using a thematic approach where, for example History and Geography meet Art, Design Technology and Computing. The approach makes learning more interesting and enjoyable through a wide range of different experiences. 


Pupils within the Junior class have their own classroom in which they are based and a teacher who teaches them their core subjects. For the majority of their foundation subjects they're taught by specialist subject teachers and access these lessons within the appropriate facility within the main school building. This helps to ensure that when they transition to one of our main Key Stage 3 teaching groups they already know a lot of the school staff and classrooms. 


We also offer a range of valuable learning experiences outside the classroom with regular trips to places of interest in the local area and further afield.
