The Hulme Hall Junior Learning Centre provides a happy and nurturing environment that celebrates the uniqueness of every child. We recognise that children develop at their own rate, and therefore teach the children according to their ability rather than their age or year group. This belief is central to our planning, resulting in a tailor made, responsive curriculum designed to stimulate and encourage a lifelong love of learning.
Our open-plan, spacious rooms lend themselves to the multi-sensory learning that is our speciality. We consider the learning differences and styles
of each child to ensure that expert support is given where necessary, whilst at the same time setting work that is appropriately challenging so that every child reaches his or her potential.
We see on a daily basis how a caring and supportive approach to teaching encourages creative and enquiring minds, and appreciate that children learn best in a vibrant setting that is safe and secure.
A holistic approach ensures that the JLC addresses the needs of the whole child. The wellbeing of both mind and body are taken into account with daily
meditation, the Fit Kids exercise programme and a selection of healthy snacks that are enjoyed at break time as the children socialise.
A number of our lessons including Music, ICT and PE are taught by specialist teachers in the Senior School. This familiarises the children with not only the staff and students in the wider school, but the layout of the buildings as well. Our close working relationship with the senior staff ensures that children in the JLC are well prepared for the transition into the Senior School where they will continue to receive excellent support, if needed, from the Enrichment Department and Pastoral Team.
Specialist and experienced staff ensure that a wide variety of specific educational needs are catered for including dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia and social and communication issues. However our appeal is by no means limited to those children with learning differences. Parents choose to send their child to the Hulme Hall Junior Learning Centre because it offers something other schools do not – small group teaching that focuses on how each child learns and uses their areas of interest to engage them in good, productive learning. Our flexible curriculum allows us to revisit concepts until they are secure, recognising that building firm foundations in literacy and numeracy is the stepping stone to successful learning.
The Junior Learning Centre offers an opportunity to learn in an exciting and innovative educational setting, where children are praised frequently and actively encouraged to have fun as they learn.
Happy children make good learners!
