Key Stage 2
The curriculum is structured through adopting a two year cycle of themes.
The thematic approach to the curriculum supports children to make links and connections in their knowledge and skills through learning in practical and hands on experiences. This approach better accommodates children facing a range of learning barriers through enabling them to utilize different learning styles and preferences.
Children have access to the full range of subjects within the National Curriculum including Religious Education. The specific themes create the framework through which subject areas are delivered in a four year programme during Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The curriculum encorporates regular swimming, Food Technology, horse riding and sensory sessions.
All pupils are considered as individuals and individual learning activities are planned to reflect a pupil’s abilities and specialist needs.
The curriculum is supported by a wide range of enrichment activities including off site visits, and visits by a variety of different organisations. There are also opportunities for inclusion with mainstream peers and ‘dual placements’ with mainstream primary schools.
Year 6 pupils will be entered for KS2 SATS where appropriate.
