Salford Satellite

Salford Satellite is a classroom that is a part of Ruru Specialist School and is situated at Salford School.
We have 1 teacher and 2 teacher aides supporting five students aged between 5 and 9 years old. We also have support from therapists and specialists.

  • We tailor our learning programmes to meet the needs of our students by implementing Individual Education Plans.
  • Reading, writing and maths based on each child’s needs, at each child’s level, are taught daily and assessed regularly.
  • Each term an integrated, themed unit is explored and the students are encouraged to use the various items of technology we have available – iPads, Interactive Whiteboards, computer and internet access.
  • All of our students are involved in therapy sessions in speech, sensory, swimming, music and OT.
  • The students also learn skills for life including dressing, personal care, cooking, fitness and how to keep clean and healthy.
  • We use the school vans to explore outside the classroom and to travel to off-campus activities.
  • We keep fit doing daily fitness and PE.
