CURRICULUM

Our curriculum is founded upon a developmental and holistic approach. Each pupil has their own starting point and their own aspirations and these are used as the starting blocks on which to build a ‘person appropriate’ pathway.

Our curriculum is relevant, purposeful and engaging and delivered within a learning environment that stimulates creativity, challenges, motivates and is rewarding and fun. We value play as core developmental skill.
