Our school curriculum is underpinned by our School Vision: Dream, Achieve, Believe (DAB).  The curriculum is the means by which the school achieves its objective of educating all pupils in the knowledge, skills and understanding they need in order to become confident individuals, successful learners and responsible/ valued citizens.  Through this, every child will have a positive future pathway to adult life.


The school has created two pathways, which we use to provide students with the most appropriate curriculum, teaching strategies and approaches.  These are 'Formal Learners' for those who work within a more formal, structured learning environment and 'Social Communication' learners who require a more sensory and communication based approach to learning.


The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development.  It includes not only the formal requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage, the National Curriculum, the agreed RE syllabus, Sex and Relationships Education and the accredited courses for KS4 and post-16 pupils, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises to enrich the experiences of the children.  It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave.  We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work with others while developing their knowledge and skills, so that they can achieve their true potential.  The school curriculum fulfils our duties in the Equality Act 2020 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014.  If you want to find out more about our school curriculum please contact your child’s class teacher or Katie Barnes (Deputy Head).  Katie's contact details can be found on our Contact page.
