At Grange Park we recognise the importance of integrating our pupils into the wider community. Integration is extremely valuable to our pupils because it provides opportunities for:
• experiential learning
• social interaction
• life skills
• developing coping strategies
Pupils at key stages 3 and 4 access lessons at Wrotham School which is on the same site as us. Subjects available at present include: science, music, drama and art and we are looking to expand on these.
For some pupils the emphasis will be on academic achievement, for others the emphasis will be on interacting socially with a different peer group.
All pupils are supported by Grange Park staff.
The only criterion we use for integration is that it must be a positive experience for the pupil.
