Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2
Therapeutic intervention and input will be woven into the fabric of each school day, consequently, students receive a dynamic, holistic curriculum offer which will support their readiness for learning and meet each aspect of their Education, Health and Care Plan.
Students will have their own multidisciplinary team with a named teacher, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech and language therapist and a progress and transition coordinator. This team will meet regularly to review their achievement and progress and ensure that they are reaching their maximum potential. Priority will be given to developing students’ communication skills, together with developing their personal independence and physical wellbeing. Individualised and personalised learning will be generated through key experiences and will be built upon a foundation of seven curriculum priorities; wellbeing, self-awareness, communication, resilience, independence, collaboration and curiosity.
Our Primary curriculum will:
- Develop the fundamental skills of communication, literacy and numeracy
- Integrate therapy into the school day
- Provide a rich and varied context for developing e.g. observing, interpreting, predicting and engaging
- Promote positive attitudes to school and learning
- Provide opportunities to learn in a practical and kinaesthetic way
- Provide opportunities for developing movement and manipulative skills and maintain postural needs
- Provide opportunities to develop knowledge, understanding and skills through play and thematic learning
All students will engage in sessions that support the outcomes of their EHCP through a creative, topic-based curriculum. For many students these sessions will be titled English, Maths, PSHE and PE. Literacy and numeracy skills will be embed into the thematic, cross-curriculum approach allowing students to make better connections between different areas of learning. Some students will demonstrate they have the capacity to explore key elements (e.g. art, DT, Science) of this approach in more detail.
Students will be taught predominantly in their own familiar classroom setting with access to specialist PE, Music and Outdoor Learning teachers. Their daily timetable is flexible to accommodate tailored learning and therapeutic activities.
