Our Approach

Obtaining the best possible outcomes for our students is one of our highest priorities. We have developed a pathway system that lets us support the whole range of needs and talents that our students display. Every student has a timetable that reflects their specific requirements, with sessions delivered by subject specialist teachers and therapists.

Regardless of Key Stage, our students’ curriculum will be based on three elements:

Core – followed by all students

Foundation – accessed by students dependent upon need/support

Access – therapy programmes to support and develop language, learning, life and social skills.

See below our curriculum documents for further information on how the curriculum is delivered across Key Stage groups.
