At Pegasus, we pride ourselves on the wrap around pastoral support we offer to all our students. We constantly challenge and review our approach seeking to unlock student potential and enable all students to have the confidence to make positive choices with the aim of a successful return to mainstream school. Pegasus offers provision for a range of students aged between 6 and 14, across both KS2 and KS3, as a result of Managed Moves, Permanent Exclusions or out of area placements.
The Teaching and Learning approach at Pegasus provides students with a more holistic and tailored curriculum within which they are encouraged to make positive behavioural choices, which in turn can lead to self-regulation, control and behaviour modification. We understand that not all behavioural issues are the result of poor choices, but more than likely there is a need, which has previously been unidentified or unmet. We offer a number of screening services for needs such as Speech, Language and Communication Difficulties (SLCN), where all students (as appropriate) are assessed following induction, from which further therapeutic and tailored support from Speech and Language specialists can then be implemented.
Although both KS2 and KS3 are educated within the same building, they are distinct in that there are separate learning environments, daily routines and differing hours. Within the KS2 provision, there is a thematic approach which is taught alongside key subjects, and all students are taught within a single class, dependent upon numbers. KS3 has students in classes for their respective ages, which mirrors the provision offered in mainstream settings. We feel this maintains consistency so students can transition back into mainstream settings, when they are ready, as seamlessly as possible. The key subjects offered likewise follow in line with the National Curriculum taught within mainstream schools.
Pegasus maintains links with various agencies; some of which are pilot studies. These include for example, Headstart, Equine Studies, KS3 Literacy Strategy, Right to Succeed and The Speech Bubble. These programmes are reviewed and evaluated regularly and help to augment and enrich our diverse curriculum.
At Pegasus we have the commitment to support all our students on their journey towards maximising their potential in a safe and supportive environment conducive to learning, where every child really does matter.
