Bungalow/Preparing for Adulthood
Post 16 students have access to a bungalow which is situated just outside the school grounds, a very short walk from the school main entrance. The bungalow has recently been fully refurbished and consists of a large open plan kitchen and dining area, an accessible toilet, small office, bedroom, lounge and large outdoor space. Students are able to use the bungalow on a weekly basis for a range of purposes, the main one being to practice and develop their independence and life skills in a home environment. This may involve activities such as cooking, cleaning, making the bed, ironing, laundry, planning leisure activities and gardening.
Students have been cooking their own lunches, setting the table, washing up, drying up and putting cutlery and crockery away. Today they cooked tuna pasta bake.
