Needs-Led Curriculum

At St Dominic’s School we follow a Needs-Led Curriculum which is built on the ethos that teaching does not just take place in the classroom at St Dominic’s and is not just delivered by the teacher. Pupils and students learn from staff appointed in all positions, from etiquette in the dining room to work experience with the maintenance team; and that’s without counting the hundreds of small daily interactions that take place in the school day!

The Needs-Led approach has been designed specifically to put the needs of pupils and students firmly at the forefront of everything we do.

See below for more information on the Needs-Led Curriculum at St Dominic’s School.
