IMPLEMENTATION

Our curriculum has a clear focus on meeting individual needs through stimulating learning experiences.  A topic-based, cross-curricular approach links concepts within an overarching theme which is designed to be flexible to allow for specific interests, over-learning, reinforcement, consolidation, generalisation of children’s knowledge & skills. The curriculum is differentiated to ensure the diverse needs of our different cohorts of pupils are met, ensuring that they all have access to areas of learning which are suited to them. The same overall topic is studied by all classes within each key stage, with a mixture of approaches employed to support individual learning needs and to enable access for all pupils. The local and extended community is fully utilised to enhance learning opportunities. Appropriate and effective interventions are used to support learning, for example, PECS, Rebound Therapy, Therapeutic Play, Lego Therapy, Oral Motor Programmes, ABA approaches, Intensive Interaction, Sensory Integration and Fun with Food.
