Poppy Centre

Poppy Centre

Our Poppy Centre caters for students with ASD and moderate learning needs. We follow the Level 1 and Level 2 Learning Programmes to cater for all levels of abilities. This allows for a dynamic and engaging curriculum to help to fully address the diverse learning needs of every student.

Each Learning programme consists of Priority learning units (PLUs). Students can engage with the PLUs through a variety of educational experiences. Programmes have meaning for students, are enjoyable, and support them in achieving their potential. Learning connects to life outside of school. Consideration is given to the student’s prior learning and experiences personal and social development and age appropriateness.

At Holy Child, students are at the centre of teaching and learning, and will have an educational experience that addresses their individual needs and enables them to live, learn, work and contribute with the greatest degree of autonomy in the communities to which they belong.

There is a strong focus on integration and inclusion. Efforts are made to integrate students with their mainstream peers through TY work experience placements, representation on both the Student Council and Green Schools Committee and inclusion in suitable mainstream classes where feasible. Poppy Centre students are Holy Child students and as such mix with their mainstream peers weekly at assemblies and twice daily for both break and lunch.

The following PLUs and short courses are available to our Poppy Centre students:

  • Communication and literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Living in the Community
  • Personal Care and Wellbeing
  • Digital Media Literacy
  • The Arts
  • Physical Education
  • Food Glorious Food
  • CSI
