Formal Curriculum

Pupils experiencing our formal curriculum access a range of National Curriculum subjects, modified in the light of their developmental level and special educational needs. Life skills and independence skills will also form a large part of the curriculum for our Formal pupils in preparation for life beyond and alongside Fountaindale. Teachers ensure that learning is linked to practical activities and consolidated and applied in practical sessions.

Older pupils working at the formal level may pursue accreditation pathways (e.g. Entry Level and Level 1 courses and exams); they follow the appropriate syllabus in each exam subject. The characteristics of effective leaning will also form a key part of the formal curriculum. Personalised learning must include targets from the child’s EHCP.
