Our curriculum at Princes reflects the individual needs of each child. Alongside our specific National Curriculum subjects; we acknowledge the importance of wellbeing, sensory integration, play, independent living skills and communication and language as priority areas. All children have targets based on their EHCP outcomes and personal goals and aspirations.
We value learning through play and a relationship centric approach to teaching and learning. Leading research, therapeutic interventions and a focus on functional life skills ensure that our children have the tools they need to reach their potential. Our pupils follow a clear continuum for progress, with the aspiration being our formal learning pathway. Our curriculum overview document explains in detail how our children follow a pathway model and we track both their linear and lateral progress to ensure their success.
Our curriculum offers a broad and balanced array of topics which exposes our children to all areas of the National Curriculum and more. Enrichment weeks, celebration days and specialist peripatetic staff supplement learning and expand on the cultural capital of our children.
Please read of our Curriculum Intent and Curriculum Overview documents for more information. If you have any questions or queries, please contact Jodie Hudson or Emma McCormick at school.
Out reading framework, adopted as part of the reading curriculum, was developed through using PIVATS 5, the MSLD EYFS and Launchpad for Literacy. The phonics scheme we use is Letters & Sounds. We are in the process of trialling a new reading scheme from Badger Learning.
