Our Curriculum

Our pupil-centred curriculum is built around the individual. Our pupils all have their own bespoke route. Our three curriculum pathways teach pupils a varied and rich curriculum to prepare them for adult life. We make use of strategies that are appropriate to the individual. These may include Sensory Integration, Intensive Interaction, NAS SPELL and Attention Autism teaching strategies to support our pupils.

We have a high staff-to-pupil ratio, and classes are small and personal. We know each pupils’ needs and potential and can employ the best strategies to support them in preparation for adulthood.

To provide a broad, balanced curriculum and accommodate a creative approach to teaching and learning, five key strands underpin our curriculum pathways:

  • Communication and English: to develop the process of the interchange of thoughts, opinions, or information by speech, writing or signs.
  • Independence and Learning: to acquire and process knowledge and understanding through thought, experiences, and the senses.
  • Outdoor School/ Community: to feel part of the school and local community in terms of where pupils go, what they do and who they see. To make independent choices and have an impact on the World around them.
  • Physical Well-Being: to establish a balance of physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, and occupational well-being.
  • Play and Leisure: to develop the key skills associated with play, imagination, and fun.
