The School Curriculum
Our school curriculum embraces everything that happens during the school day and beyond, through our Extended Services.
We aim to offer all pupils and students carefully planned learning experiences underpinned by a broad set of common values and purposes, which recognise and respect the diversity within our school community.
We aim to develop successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens by:
- Delivering Foundation and National Curriculum subjects at an appropriate personalised level
- Ensuring social, emotional, creative and physical aspects of learning are equally valued
- Involving pupils and students in planning and reviewing their learning through personalised challenges and support
- Providing opportunities for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
- Recognising and celebrating cultural diversity whilst promoting community cohesion
- Providing opportunities for pupils to explore enterprise, work related learning and making a positive contribution to the community
Our curriculum is designed by the staff and reviewed regularly to take account of the changing needs of the school population and the changing face of special needs education across the world.
It is built upon a belief that individual pupils should and will have a bespoke package of education which meets their individual needs and gives them the opportunities to develop not only communication and cognitive skills but also physical and social skills, through carefully planned sport and leisure activities, as well as nurturing their creative talents and instilling in each of them a sense of their place in the world, as active citizens.
The curriculum is organised into six key areas: Communication and Social Interaction, Mathematics, Science and Technology, The Arts, Humanities and Physical Well-being and Citizenship. It is driven by key themes including Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development, an understanding of Enterprise and Sustainability and a commitment to allowing everybody to shine in some way, whatever difficulties they face.
