Curriculum

We provide a learning environment and approach to learning which are supportive and stimulating and meet the individual needs of each student.

By taking an individualised approach to learning we can better engage students through motivation, personal interest and building on their strengths and preferences to develop communication. The development of communication skills is at the core of everything we do. Our individual curriculum is developed through listening to students, parents and the multidisciplinary team. Individual schemes of work are planned by teachers ensuring that skills acquired by students are transferrable to settings outside of school. Students’ progress is monitored against themselves rather than their peers as each learner is different, working towards different goals using different methods. From Year 9, students have 'destination statements'. These statements underpin the student's individual programme of study.
