The school offers a broad creative curriculum designed to meet the needs of the individual, whilst ensuring that opportunities are provided for pupils to achieve the best possible educational outcomes and lay the foundations to future educational success. For some pupils, whose previous school placement may not have been right for them, staff put in place coping strategies to deal with the anxieties around change and learning. Pupils are encouraged to accept help and understand that that they have the opportunity to reach their potential.
We have a unique curriculum with five central themes. This is formed of creative cultural learning, work readiness, 5 Keys to Success / Safeguarding, multimedia working and outdoor education. This ensures a broad and balanced curriculum is available and opportunities to succeed are routinely enjoyed by all.
To maximise opportunities for pupils, education and support are provided in very small class sizes. The school follows the National Curriculum with appropriate levels of challenge within the lessons to ensure that all pupils can access learning. Some pupils need individualised timetables with a clear focus on readiness for learning to allow them to access the curriculum.
