Curriculum

We believe that children learn best when they enjoy and value coming into school to participate in an exciting, practical and relevant learning curriculum. Lessons and activities are planned to give children new experiences and to help them embed learning through hands-on approaches.

We offer a lively and vibrant curriculum which is cross curricular based in order to help our children make strong learning connections between subjects. Topics are taken from the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and are updated each year to ensure relevance to the class groups where children are placed according to their ability and learning need. Teachers further differentiate their planning to ensure topics are motivating to their group and to meet the individual needs of the pupils.

Teachers and therapists work collaboratively to ensure access to a language enriched curriculum and learning environment.

Literacy topics are carefully planned to match the cross curricular theme and to develop language and literacy skills through both fiction and non- fiction materials.

The curriculum is built and adapted to meet the needs of every individual pupil and therefore The Link Priority Curriculum covering the holistic needs of pupils through emotional, social, sensory and Independence skills is firmly embedded into everything that we do.

We also offer a diverse range of activities that incorporate specialist teaching programmes and teaching strategies, for example Dyslexia Support, Makaton Signing, Picture Augmentative Communication, the Circles Programme, Social Stories, Comic Strip Conversations and “Pictures of Me” Diagnosis support.
