Formal Curriculum (KS3 Avatar, Marvel, Da Vinci)
Our curriculum is planned, delivered and assessed at a pace and level appropriate to individual
needs via a mixture of classroom teachers and specialist subject teachers. In this way, we
aim to balance the care and support needs of students with the opportunities to be taught by
specialist teachers in dedicated learning environments. There is a progressive shift towards
this through Key Stage 3.
Within KS3 our class groups are kept small (8 to 12) and the curriculum is personalised and
differentiated to meet the particular and special needs of the students.
In Year 8 students will further build upon and develop their knowledge, understanding skills and confidence. In Year 9, students will begin to prepare for their options choices and transition to KS4.
