Formal Curriculum

The formal curriculum is for pupils who are working at National Curriculum levels at the end of Key Stage 2. This group of pupils are largely taught through individual subjects such as Maths, English and Science. Some pupils will still access specialist provision as part of their personalised provision.

Pupils at Key Stages 2 – 3 will follow National Curriculum subjects and the core subjects at Key Stage 4. All pupils within the 14-19 age range will undertake accreditation routes through awards or examinations; including GCSEs for some students. They will be working at National Curriculum levels. This group of pupils will benefit from a structure that enables personalised learning. Older pupils will undertake work related learning, including opportunities for work experience. The formal curriculum recognises that many of the pupils have a range of needs and may require access to specialist provision .This is made available through discrete teaching, for example in the use of a communication aid or visual perception skills or within the curriculum.
