Secondary Curriculum

Our pupils in both key-stage 3 and key-stage 4 follow the national curriculum. Classes are mixed ability but each pupil has a learning pathway which enables them to progress at a rate that is matched to their ability and potential. We provide a secondary curriculum which is very similar to mainstream but in smaller classes, in a physical environment which supports pupils with social communication learning difficulties. Our curriculum combines core, foundation and statutory subjects alongside lessons which: improve communication and social interaction; builds independence and resilience; and prepares our pupils for life post-16.

KS3

Our curriculum is a through curriculum from EYFS to the end of KS4. Priority is given to core subjects and removing barriers to learning caused by social, communication learning difficulties. Our pupils follow the national curriculum in key-stage 3. Year 7 curriculum follows on from the work done in Primary phase. In year 9 pupils begin a supported transition onto their key-stage 4 pathway.
