Woodlands Community Special School, Plymouth
Description Woodlands Community Special School, Plymouth
Curriculum overview : Woodlands aims to offer all pupils a broad and balanced curriculum that provides rewarding and stimulating activities for pupils and helps them prepare for increasing involvement in a fulfilling social and cultural life. Our curriculum aims to: - Promote personal development at the individual’s level and pace; - Develop independence and life skills including self-advocacy and employability; - Support pupils in making healthy choices; - Establish a safe, secure and supportive ethos; - Support learning which stretches individuals; - Promote self-confidence and positive behaviour; - Support pupils in contributing to the wider community. We believe that personalised education in a special school context involves organising the curriculum to enable each age group to access the curriculum guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage or the National Curriculum at an appropriate level. We have a curriculum that works at three distinct levels to give pupils access to the appropriate level of learning.
Within our pre-formal curriculum our pupils develop skills across the six areas of learning in a holistic way. This focusses on developmental progress rather than subject specific knowledge. Our semi-formal curriculum continues the development of individual progress with increased subject specific knowledge that is embedded within individual pupil programmes.
Our formal curriculum is based on the National Curriculum which we deliver through a mixture of topic and single subject approaches. Each department has developed their curriculum to meet the distinct needs of learners at their phase.
