Poppy Class and the ARB

Attached to Bude Junior School we have a County funded Area Resource Base (ARB) within which you will find our purpose built special needs classroom - ‘Poppy Class’. Poppy Class can cater for up to 6 children, aged 3-11 years, with additional and further needs.

We provide a high ration of staff in Poppy Class and all have a wealth of experience and respect for the children they look after.

The main classroom is bright and airy and facilitates learning life skills with a purpose built sensory room just next door. 

Within the Poppy class there is an emphasis on developing life skills and healthy choices. The curriculum aims to nurture, develop and promote every child’s potential for independence.  Inclusion with age appropriate peer groups is provided at every possible opportunity with mainstream classes e.g. for appropriate school trips, class parties and whole school events.
