Simply Support

We provide creative and performing arts sessions as an enrichment subject to be included within your timetable.

So, why wait until your year 6 production to introduce performing arts?

In this current climate paying attention to the socialisation and holistic support of child development is crucial, and adding our creativity to your timetable can fulfil this and compliment the rest of the curriculum. 

Classes are tailored to meet the needs and abilities of the individual students within the group, and can be prepared to fit alongside literally any learning topic/subject the teachers are focussing on. 

We often link our sessions to subjects that cover the national curriculum; For example if you are studying Victorians we would teach extracts and dance routines from the Musical Oliver Twist. Or maybe you are studying Africa; then we would focus on routines and songs from musicals such as The Lion King. We make and supply costumes to enhance their creativity and regularly organise a performance for friends and family at the end of the half term sessions.

Teaching through music, movement and art has been found to produce outstanding results, both in improving the confidence and social skills of children, and in supporting their academic attainment. 

Our classes have been highly successful and often help children reach targets they have struggled to meet in other areas of the curriculum. 

We teach the students to express themselves and offer the perfect outlet for imagination and emotion which can help clear the mind of anxiety and worries and lead to an all round happy student.

We are currently expanding our work and looking to provide more creative classes in school settings. If this is something that you may be interested in, would like more information, or have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

If having us attend weekly is not an option at the moment we also offer one off Enrichment days and CPD

  • How to warm up sufficiently

One of the most remarkable aspects of Lizzie’s approach is the way she has successfully catered to the diverse needs of our pupils, including those with special educational needs. Her inclusive approach and adaptability have opened doors for every learner, ensuring that no one is left behind.

Lizzie has made a significant impact on our gifted and talented dancers, pushing them to new heights of excellence. Through her expertise and keen eye for detail, she has honed their skills, challenged their limits, and inspired them to strive for greatness. Lizzie has not only taught them the technical aspects of dance but has also instilled in them a sense of artistry, creativity, and passion that sets them apart.

Beyond her exceptional teaching abilities, Lizzie has earned the utmost respect from pupils, staff, and the entire school community. Her warm and approachable nature, coupled with her genuine enthusiasm for dance, has made her a beloved figure in our school.

Lizzie has created a music therapy programme for a range of children with special aducational needs, focusing on the development of coordination, strength, stamina, flexibility and mobility, whist allowing the children to commune with each other both verbally and non-verbally. Each session has a structured programme set to music. It involves a warm up and then progresses through stages of increasing activity, challenging each individual both emotionally, physically and socially. The programme then transitions through a calmer meditative atmosphere to settle the children to prepare them for the end of the school day in a composed state.

Her unique and creative approach to music and movement has helped to enhance both the confidence and self-esteem of those pupils on the programme within a safe and fun environment. Lizzie is easy to work with and is always receptive to new ideas and challenges. She is a dynamic individual who injects fun into whatever she is involved in. Both staff and children alike, look forward to when she is in the school.

Lizzie has made a considerable impact at the school within a range of different roles. Lizzie runs a Musical Theatre club, supports teachers and pupils across the school with art and also runs bespoke SEND sessions.

Her SEND sessions have been hugely successful and is now viewed as an essential part of our school offer for the children that benefit from the sessions. The lessons are underpinned by the concept of the children learning through music and movement. The children learn the important disciplines of warming up/cooling down and are able to fully express themselves both physically and also by thinking about how they wish to perform.

Lizzie has carefully planned and led these sessions and has also managed (and trained) the school staff that support these pupils during the school day. The children are fully engaged and look forward to taking part every Friday afternoon.

I have always found Lizzie to be highly creative with her work at the school and she is popular with both the staff and pupils at Christ Church. She is actively able to problem solve a number of situations that are presented to her and this presents real value to the children. It would be fantastic to see her offer similar sessions within different settings. I recommend her work without reservation.

Dance education can be an incredibly beneficial tool for children with special needs. Through dance, these children can learn physical and mental skills that are essential for their development. Dance also provides an opportunity for them to express themselves in a creative way and gain confidence in their abilities. Furthermore, the social interaction that comes with learning to dance can help children build relationships. With the right guidance, dance education can be a powerful tool to help children with special needs reach their full potential. 

Lizzie’s experience in working with pupils with SEND enables her to offer high-quality dance lessons for pupils with a wide range of needs, such as physical disabilities, PMLD, SLD and autism. She understands how important it is for pupils to feel comfortable doing something they love, and makes each lesson personalised. 

Through weekly sessions, the Daily Dance initiative,  performances, and parent sessions, Lizzie has enabled all pupils to participate in a wide range of experiences.   She goes above and beyond to make sure all students feel comfortable while working on goals through a multi-sensory, fun and engaging approach. 

Lizzie approaches everything she does with energy and enthusiasm, she knows how to motivate the pupils and encourages all students to strive for their best. She is always willing to help in any way she can and her passion shines through in everything she does!
