Principles upon which the curriculum is based
We believe that the ability to communicate with one another is one of the most important skills we need in life. Almost everything we do involves communication. Everyday tasks such as learning at school, asking for food and drink, resolving problems, making friends and having fun all rely on our ability to communicate with each other.
We will work as a team to provide learners with:
- An individualised personal curriculum
- Opportunities to learn in the way best suited to their learning needs and styles
- Maximum access to a range of methods of communication
- A reduced dependence on adults
- An enriched and motivating curriculum
- Opportunities to be involved in real life experience beyond the classroom
Our pupils will access a broad and enriching mainstream curriculum differentiated through bespoke lessons that are delivered in a highly personalised way to connect and fully engage with every learner. We will also offer a comprehensive enrichment programme, encouraging and supporting our pupils to develop their independence skills and interests even further.
The emphasis will be on developing the individual's skills and abilities whilst fostering caring and positive attitudes. Pupils will participate in a full range of academic and social activities.
All pupils will be supported and challenged to:
- Achieve to the best of their ability in their academic, social, creative, personal, physical and moral development
- Grow in confidence and become as independent as possible
- Make a positive contribution to the school and the wider community, in which they are valued as individuals and act for the benefit of others.
