Informal Teaching and Learning Group
The Informal Pathway adopts a fully personalised curriculum which is wholly driven by EHCP outcomes and individual learner needs. Learning is facilitated through play, exploration and multi-sensory experiences where adults adopt a responsive, reactive and engaging Intensive Interaction style approach.
Through providing enabling environments and progressive experiences, curiosity, intent and independence is cultivated and developed as learners grow.
Learners will thrive through our Informal curriculum. Themes provide the stimulus to ensure all learning fully encompasses purposeful communication and key skills for life. Every learning opportunity is optimised holistically rather than in compartmentalised subject areas as we recognise our learners are at the early stages development. Learning opportunities and experiences are revisited, enhanced and broadened through an evolving and progressive spiral model of learning, ensuring all pupils are fully prepared for the next stage.
The Informal Teaching and learning group follow a six year theme cycle.
Themes are broken down further but are used as a hook to deliver personalised learning through EHCP outcomes.
POPs (Personalised Outcome Plans)
EHCP outcomes are broken down into small steps. The curriculum ensures that these personalised outcomes are the foundation for learning in the informal classes.
Timetables meet the needs of individual classes and pupils.
