Curriculum

Our Curriculum Intent

The overarching intent underpinning what we do, and why, is a simple ethos: ensuring that pupils and students achieve ambitious goals and live life to the full through a purposeful curriculum that is rooted in our collective knowledge and understanding.

In a society where it is increasingly challenging for people with ‘hidden disabilities’ to be fully included, we are presented with a moral responsibility to ensure pupils and students are able to: live with meaningful independence; secure paid employment in a career that is of interest and relevance to them; and enjoy social inclusion throughout the whole of their lives. We are proud to deliver a tailored ‘Needs Led Curriculum’ that does just that.

The curriculum comprises a broad range of personalised and aspirational learning experiences aligned to an expanding system of three concentric areas of focus:

Myself

My Context

The Wider World

Pupils revisit these areas of focus each year, working at increasing levels of depth and breadth of experience from their initial starting point at Key Stage 2, building towards academic and vocational qualifications at Key Stages 4 and 5. Fundamental British Values, as well as extra-curricular learning, permeate through the curriculum and ensure all pupils and students achieve.

Pupils and students are actively involved in their learning and, through close collaboration with families, staff carefully ensure that all learning triangulates the different approaches and pedagogy pupils and students require in order to succeed.

 

 

 

My Son has made incredible progress emotionally and applies himself much better academically. The mentoring aspect is key to his progress.
