The semi-formal curriculum recognises that some young people have a range of complex learning difficulties and disabilities; and it is this combination of two or more challenges that the curriculum is designed to meet by a personalised learning approach based on.
Our semi-formal curriculum is delivered through a thematic based approach using the ethos of Early Years - unique child; positive relationships; and enabling environments.
The curriculum is designed to be fun, engaging, practical and meaningful and matched to pupil learning and developmental needs. Regardless of the physical, emotional and learning challenges faced by the pupils due to their special educational needs and disabilities, teaching through our semi-formal curriculum captures the interest and imagination of our pupils.
Our semi-formal curriculum is currently being developed. We currently have the following areas embedded into classrooms:
