Grange Park KS5 is based at Holmesdale Technology College in Snodland
Grange Park KS5 This is a time when we move on from school and prepare for adult life. We respect ourselves, other people and our environment. We develop our knowledge and skills, manage our autism and become more independent. We learn to cope with, and be included in the community.
I will have my own working area in the classroom. I will have my own pencil case, books and folders. In my class I have a Teacher and Teaching Assistants (TAs). I will work with different teachers and TAs for different subjects. My classroom
Working environment We spend some of the time in the classroom. We also work in a lot of other different places, often out in the community. These are some examples: in the kitchen
My taxi or minibus will bring me to school. I will wait in my taxi until 8.45am 8.45 I go to the front entrance. Staff meet me and show me in.

Lunchtime Once a week we cook our own lunch with our class and eat it in our kitchen The rest of us go to the Holmesdale canteen for our packed lunch or school meal
We go to the canteen at 12.50. This is ten minutes before the Holmesdale students so it is not too busy. If we want a school meal we queue up for our food. We choose what we want then pay for it. We sit and eat with our friends If we bring our own packed lunch we can go and eat it in the packed lunch room. In the canteen

Fruit At breaktime we can have fruit to eat with our drinks. We pay £1 each week for this. Uniform There is no uniform but we wear smart clothes. No jeans or trainers. PE We keep PE clothes, swimming things and a towel in our lockers to use in the gym, sports hall and swimming sessions. We wash these after each session.
Leisure Time After lunch we have leisure time. Normally we play games such as pool, chess or table football. Sometimes we go outside to play football. Once a week we can go on the computers in leisure time. Toilets Our toilets are kept locked so that only Grange Park students can use them. We ask for the key from the office and remember to put it back afterwards
Jobs Each morning we look at the jobs rota in the hallway. We put our job on our desk. This reminds us to do the job during the day. Personal Equipment No mobile phones, ipods or any other computer games are allowed in school. Assembly Once a week all Grange Park FS5 students have assembly together in the hallway.
Credits We can get credits for good work and effort. Six times a year at the end of term the students with the most credits have a special outing, for example Term 1 – meal for six students Term 2 – bowling and a meal for eight students Behaviour We are expected to manage our own behaviour. We can use the quiet area in the hallway if we need somewhere to calm down. We need to take a blue card when we do this.
