Enhanced Mainstream School

Rosebrook is an Enhanced Mainstream School (EMS), specialising in supporting those pupils with an Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP), their primary need being communication and interaction.

The Hub has two main teaching areas which are designed to meet both play-based and formal styles of learning. Children have access to both areas depending on individual development and need. A sensory room and soft play area provide opportunities for emotional regulation, occupational therapy and quiet time.

Additional sessions such as developing fine motor skills and turn taking are implemented alongside the curriculum and are adapted to suit the needs of the children.

The provision is partly-funded, supported and reviewed by Stockton Local Authority, but is run and managed by Rosebrook Primary School staff.  Application for a place is via One Point Panel and then through a consultation process.  Children with a hub place are encouraged to transition into their parallel mainstream classes for elements of the timetable, depending on their strengths and interests. Staff across school have had additional training specific to working with children with communication and interaction needs.

We are privileged to be able to welcome children who would not normally be in a mainstream school.
