All pupils have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, based on the National Curriculum, which is differentiated and modified for pupils with severe and complex speech, language and communication needs. Strong processes for assessment, planning, teaching and reviewing ensure that each pupil makes the maximum progress in learning.

Small Class Sizes
Class sizes vary from eight to twelve pupils, across year groups and key stages.
Classes are organised primarily based on pupils’ language comprehension skills, also taking account of curriculum attainments, learning and social needs.
Each class has a core team of teacher, SLT and at least one learning support assistant. Specialist teaching is offered in music, PE and art, craft and design. Children generally stay within their class group for teaching and therapy. Mixed groups of learners may be organised for specific timetabled sessions according to ability and need.
