Pupils usually come into school in EYFS/ KS1. By the time they reach KS4 and P16 they have a pathway of learning to suit their learning style and academic ability. This is determined and discussed collaboratively throughout their time in school and remains flexible.
Accredited options are regularly reviewed to reflect the needs of each cohort of pupils. The curriculum emphasis is a personalised pathway tailored to meet the needs of each individual pupil. The curriculum aims are achieved throughout day educational and further enhanced and taught in residential. Teachers and residential staff work together to ensure that provision is seamless and of the highest quality, overcoming barriers to learning and promoting choice and independence at every opportunity.
