We follow the IMPACTS curriculum, a needs-led programme focusing on the key areas of: communication, cognition, physical development, environmental control technology, and personal, emotional and social wellbeing (which includes self-help and self-advocacy skills).
Where appropriate, the National Curriculum is taken into consideration in the planning and delivery of activities.
Teaching staff work together with therapists and learning support assistants to develop and deliver a meaningful, appropriate and personalised curriculum for every student. Classes are grouped according to students’ sensory needs, cognitive understanding and compatibility.
Some of our students have particular interests which are related to their developmental age rather than their chronological age. We consider it important to strike the right balance in acknowledging the students’ interests and offering age-appropriate options.
