The Sanctuary is used in many ways, it is a vital resource to the college. During lesson time the Sanctuary becomes a vibrant place of learning where students from all year groups are given opportunities to minimize barriers to learning and progress in specific areas of need. To do this students use our IT facilities alongside an extensive bank of resources which are specifically designed to target learning difficulties on an individual basis. At break and lunch times, the Sanctuary becomes a calming area where students can gather their thoughts, complete homework and socialise. Before and after school, the Sanctuary hosts individual intervention sessions and after school clubs.
At Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College we will do all we can to enable our additional needs students to fully access all aspects of college life and make progress, despite their learning needs. All of our staff are committed to tailoring the curriculum to accommodate all learning needs. We aim to build the confidence of students with additional needs and allow them to view their special learning need as a challenge which can be overcome. We want all of our students with additional needs to achieve their full potential and to leave Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College with high self-esteem, confidence, good grades and skill sets to allow then to reach their goal, enjoy life and become valued members of society.
