AMBITION FOR ALL - Curriculum Statement

Our curriculum is ambitious and has a strong focus on academic knowledge. The reason for this is that before their mental health breakdown many of our students showed high levels of academic ability. Although our curriculum is based on knowledge, we also teach a strong life skills strand alongside with students gaining AQA Action Awards or completing diplomas and certificates in areas of personal interest. All students complete a cognitive abilities test and further research is made into their learning style. We use this information to design a programme in which they have a say and which progressively increases from an inital high amount of therapy, to less therapy and more academics as their mental health improves. Students with additional SEN diagnosis or needs complete the same testing, and we are ambitious for all our students. We run a strong interventions offer and much of our teaching is actually 1:1 or small group tuition. Every week the SLT debates any proposed changes to an individual's or group curriculum with suggestions for changes coming from teachers, professionals or indeed the students themselves. In this way our curriulum remains bespoke and relevant to the student, thus reducing their anxiety around learning.
