Curriculum Design

Our Curriculum Principles         

                                              

The curriculum is designed so that it:

 

  • Encourages and enables pupils to express preferences, communicate needs, make choices, make decisions and choose options that other people act on and respect

 

  • Is sequenced according to pupils’ individual needs, their starting points and their long term goals

 

  • Develops enjoyment of learning, using a creative approach, encouraging high levels of achievement and attainment

​​​​​​​

  • Is delivered within a climate for learning that is positive, stimulating, challenging, motivating, rewarding, fun/enjoyable

​​​​​​​

  • Enables pupils to interact and communicate effectively with a wide range of people

​​​​​​​

  • Recognises and encourages individual talents; having the highest expectations of each pupil through personalised learning programmes linked to their Education, Health and Care Plans

​​​​​​​

  • Increases pupils’ awareness and understanding of their environment and the world

​​​​​​​

  • Develops personal self-confidence and self-esteem based on a variety of successful experiences

​​​​​​​

  • Prepares pupils to play an active role as citizens; developing a healthy, safe lifestyle; developing good relationships and respecting differences between people

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

  • Prepares pupils for an adult life in which they have the greatest possible degree of autonomy.
