We want the children in our SRB to be happy, engaged, motivated and to enjoy their learning.
We offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced and which builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress through each Key Stage. The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of The National Curriculum, Core Stories and other challenging experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our SRB. At the same time we place great emphasis on Social and Emotional learning including Thrive and PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) programmes.
We always include sessions of structured and therapeutic play as this develops emotional well being and socialisation.
Our aim is to inspire our children to become confident, skilled and independant.
Our curriculum also includes the promotion of The Arts and a strong eco awareness and Forest Schools.
ICT is used to enhance teaching and curriculum provision. The children use ipads and laptops in all curriculum areas and we provide discreet lessons to teach computing skills.
In order to promote aspiration in our children we develop opportunities to learn about British values, national culture and diversity. We also include themes that will teach children about countries and cultures from around the world.
We frequently promote Healthy School activities.
Our SRB is committed to developing the whole person and we believe opportunities to develop values and attitudes are as important as the development of skills and knowledge. Spiritual, moral, social emotional and cultural development is emphasised in all aspects of school life.
Parents are encouraged to come into the SRB for regular meetings to discuss progress and share the child’s successes
The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the requisite skills and knowledge to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for returning to their home school.
