Our Curriculums


Each Class has a bespoke curriculum that is meaningful and purposeful to the children within it. The curriculums are completely flexible and will change and adapt to the children’s needs and interests while keeping a keen focus on specific areas of development. Each child has a Personal Learning Plan which maps out children’s targets in line with their EHCPs and how the development of these skills will be facilitated by carefully matched transactional supports. Each child also has a wellbeing profile which identifies key supports for each child to promote and maintain positive wellbeing in the areas of Social and emotional, physical and sensory, environmental, educational and communication.
