    Teaching and Learning

    Curriculum

    All pupils receive their entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum, following national guidelines.
    The curriculum for nursery and reception aged pupils follows Early Years’ Foundation (EYFS) guidelines.  Pupils in Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 follow the National Curriculum structure.  Pupils aged 14-19 receive a curriculum structured mainly by the ASDAN Award Scheme.

    Pupils with visual and hearing impairments are supported by members of the school’s Sensory Impairment Team.

    The school uses The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which is divided into four Mileposts (Early Years, Milepost 1, Milepost 2, Milepost 3).  Each Milepost offers its pupils highly inclusive hands-on learning experiences whilst celebrating creativity and diversity.  The themes range from Family and Home, to Explorers and The Rainforest.

    Each pupil receives specialist teaching in each area of Performing Arts (Music, Dance and Drama) Art and PE (including swimming for some classes and access to a splash pool for some younger pupils).

    All curriculum guidelines are modified and adapted to suit the individual needs of each pupil.

    The school also holds special days such as World Book Day and  International Day and special weeks such as History Week and recognises some charity events such as Children in Need Day.

    Extra Curricular Activities

    The school takes every opportunity to enhance pupils’ learning through a variety of educational, leisure and social events.

    These include functions, theatre trips, residential visits and visits to places of interest.
