Curriculum

Our curriculum is broadly similar to a mainstream school. Content is differentiated to meet the needs of all our students. Classes are small and always supported by a Special Support Assistant in addition to the Teacher. Our curriculum promotes the academic and encourages creativity but with appropriate levels of care and support.

At the start of every half term parents receive a Curriculum Overview which outlines the topics of study within each subject. The overview also provides a range of ideas for parents about how to support their child’s learning at home. It includes information on assessment dates, alongside a home learning booklet to develop core skills of literacy and numeracy.

All students Years 7 to 11 broadly follow the National Curriculum. We review our curriculum offer for each key stage annually to ensure effectiveness.

Key Stage 3 consists of the Year 7 and 8 classes. Key Stage 4 consists of Years 9, 10 and 11.  Students in Key Stage 4 take different qualifications depending on their pathways.

There is a lovely feeling at school, it is always very positive, warm and welcoming – Parent Survey 2018
