Curriculum Rationale

What we teach and why we teach it

Our curriculum bullseye on the right shows our aims for all students, how we enable those and which subjects we offer to facilitate that learning.

We follow three routes of the EQUALS curriculum:

How you can help your child at home

We will send home a review of how your child is progressing towards their learning outcomes 3 times a year. This will enable you to identify ways to support the learning in school. This can involve physio, independence, communication and social skills.

It is also good to share books with children, whatever their level. This enables interaction, to support communication and for those readers and emerging readers, it will support their development.

What other support is available for you and your child?

Our special school nurses work in the school 4 days a week and are available for phone support on a Friday. They provide training for school staff, advice and support.

If your child requires medicine, please make sure you have signed a consent form. The bottle must be clearly labelled by the pharmacist with your child’s name, the date and the dose to be given.

The nurse also supports community paediatric clinics in the school as well wheelchair clinics, CAMHS, dental, sight and hearing tests.
