The Hive at Conway is a wonderful learning space, providing structured but personalised activities that support our children to make both academic and social and emotional progress.
The Hive provides a learning hub for small groups of children, running one session in the morning for Key Stage Two pupils (Hive One), and one session in the afternoon for Reception and Key Stage One pupils (Bumblebees).
Currently, we have seven pupils who attend our morning session in the Hive (including one child from year Two), and six pupils who attend our afternoon session. All the children have additional Special Needs, such as Autism, and are either on a Support Plan, or an Education and Health Care plan, or are on the path to being supported by these plans.
We have a team of three staff members who work in the Hive, Ms. Penhallow, Mrs. Mehreen and Ms. Saunders. The team work closely together, and have continuing professional development support from our SENDCo, Chloe Williams, as well as from the outside agencies, who work closely with the staff at Conway, to ensure that the pupils have the best provision and experience possible at school.
The children love attending both the Hive and Bumblebees, finding a supportive and safe place to both learn and play. We find that the children make good progress, flourishing as they grow in self-confidence: the Hive is a place that Conway children can feel successful. As one child puts it, “I’m on fire, today!”
