Curriculum

St Dominic’s is proud to offer a tailored Needs Led curriculum that begins at Key Stage 2 and builds towards academic and vocational qualifications at Key Stages 4 and 5. Details for each key stage can be obtained within this section or by following up with the school.

We aim for pupils and students to be actively involved in their learning by ensuring that learning experiences take into account the different approaches and contexts pupils and students require for optimal learning to take place. Pupils and students are provided with a range of relevant, coherent, engaging, challenging and personalised learning experiences across the Waking Day Curriculum so that they can achieve the following competencies:

  • Successful learners
  • Confident individuals
  • Responsible Citizens
  • Effective contributors

In order for all pupils and students to achieve the four competencies the Curriculum at St Dominic’s is based on six key principles:

  • Personalisation and Choice
  • Relevance and coherence
  • Challenge and enjoyment
  • Breadth  and depth
  • Progression
  • Collaboration

 

The residential special school provides highly effective services that consistently exceed the standards of good. The actions of the school contribute to significantly improved outcomes and positive experiences for children and young people. Ofsted – March 2019
