Classes at St Piers have no more than five or six children in each.
This is hugely beneficial for children who are low in confidence or have distinct needs. They get to know their teacher much more personally and build up a rapport that simply wouldn’t be possible in a busier classroom.
Small classes allow us to focus on individual pupils’ needs. We share care plans between teaching staff, residential staff and on site therapists, enabling our specially trained teachers to be fully aware of the individual circumstances of each child. This means they’re in a position to react quickly if a pupil needs urgent therapy or medical attention.
We believe children learn better in smaller classes and therefore are more likely to reach their full potential at St Piers.
