Welcome to Bayley Class


Our aim in Bayley Class is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that reflects the student’s age and stage in their educational journey. The students in Bayley class follow the Willow Pathway. Within the Willow pathway, the curriculum content is delivered to provide a rich and purposeful content which highlights the bigger picture for the learning and enables learners to practice and embed learned skills functionally. This approach to delivering the curriculum guarantees that personalized learning is manufactured in an all-inclusive structure. Optimum learning for pupils following the Willow pathway occurs when the learning opportunities are related to their own practical experiences. In Bayley Class we provide not only relevant topic-based learning, but also practical and functional experiences that will allow pupils to generalize the knowledge and skills learned at St. Nicholas School. At this stage, we begin to focus on preparing our pupils for the future by equipping them with the tools required for a successful transition into adulthood. Our ultimate goal in Bayley Class is to provide an engaging, highly motivating, and bespoke education for learners by creating meaningful and enticing learning opportunities that foster independence, confidence, and resilience which can be generalized to the world around them.



Bayley class has an exciting summer term in store for them this year! In terms 1 and 2 our topic in honesty. We will be reading The Crucible in English, and we will be continuing our phonics lessons in Reading. We will also be learning about various different continents in our word studies sessions and growing our confidence in PSHE.


We will be swimming at Kingsmead Leisure Centre for P.E. this term, so everyone will need their swim kit on Thursdays. Additionally, every Monday or Thursday pupils will be attending cooking skills sessions with Natalie, where they will have the opportunity to cook a variety of recipes as independently as possible. 


The timetable as well as our key learning topics are posted in our Class Documents section. If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact me via email.


Home Learning Project

Students will all have a recipe book made on communication InPrint to encourage and support cooking at home. Students are asked to make 1 recipe per week from their book. Students will also be sent a Life Skills booklet to encourage day to day living skills activities including washing up, cooking and laundry. The booklet is made on communication InPrint to support understanding. 


Handwriting and Spelling Practice 

Every week students are given a new word that is related to our learning. Students will practice writing and spelling this word in their handwriting books. Our aim is to improve our handwriting so that it is more legible.
