ABOUT



At Blue Sky Learning, we believe that every child is extraordinary and that education has the capacity and the possibility to change lives for the better.  Here, teaching and learning is built upon a foundation that is inclusive, supportive, challenging and empowering.  We promote high expectations, aspirations and an intense engagement in learning. This supports learners in establishing the values, attitudes, skills and knowledge through which they will be able to achieve success, gain fulfilment in the future and become life-long learners.​

Children have special educational needs if they have a need that presents a barrier for learning, this may be academic, social or emotional and which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

 

All staff are responsible and accountable for all the children in each session and provide High Quality teaching, including kinaesthetic activities, effective differentiation, and planning lessons that consider all needs and remove barriers so every pupil can achieve.

 

However, for some pupils, accessing the curriculum within a mainstream setting can be a challenge and a barrier to learning in itself. This may be because of a learning, emotional and/or social or medical need.

 

Research has shown that the way we behave is linked to how we feel and our emotions are linked to how we learn. By teaching children to recognise and notice these feelings and emotions it can help with their development and learning. Children sometimes need some extra support with their emotional growth and this can be temporary or over a longer period of time.

Our Approach

Blue Sky Learning offers a bespoke, kinaesthetic approach to learning which includes drawing and talking therapy, outside education and S.E.M.H. activities as well as a meditation/yoga session to promote well-being.

 

We also offer regular Thrive sessions to enable children to have a safe space in which they can explore their feeling and emotions and learn strategies to help soothe and regulate.

Mission Statement

Blue Sky Learning provide highly reliable, bespoke educational learning, that offers support with all aspects of the National Curriculum through hands on activities, kinaesthetic tasks and a range of well-being strategies to promote a student's Social and Emotional Mental Health (S.E.M.H.)
