Who is the Resourced Provision at Mersey Drive for?
Believe to Achieve
The ambitious curriculum within The Hive has a clear vision designed to give pupils knowledge, skills and behaviours to promote their social and economic inclusion. Pupils are autistic and/or neurodiverse and aged between 4 and 11. All pupils experience differences in the way they process information which requires specialist support in order to remove barriers for pupils to engage and learn.
The responsive curriculum matches the needs and aspirations of all pupils by providing personalised learning programmes, taking account of their starting point and planned destination so that all pupils can participate, achieve and make progress. The Hive works to prepare all pupils for the next stage in their education, employment and/or lives through a coherent and sequenced learning experience
