At Stretton Shires School we want our pupils to be immersed in a curriculum that supports them to experience and develop an understanding of:
skills to support functional communication, interaction, and reading skills, enabling effective communication and safe access to a variety of community settings and wider learning opportunities.
skills to support emotional regulation, linked to physical and sensory needs, ensuring safe access to a variety of community settings and wider learning opportunities.
skill to support social, emotional, and mental health, developing independent living and life skills that will support safe access to a variety of community settings and wider learning opportunities.
what it means to be a human and how human behaviour impacts and shapes the world they live in.
the visual, cultural, social and environmental aspects of the wider world and where they live.
the natural world and an appreciation for the animal species that inhabit the world and live alongside them.
how to compare through the investigation and exploration of various processes and materials.
the significance of people, places, events and inventions that have helped to change the world in which they live.
We recognise that all pupils will need to develop core communication and interaction skills, learn how to manage their physical and sensory needs, impacting positively on their social, emotional and mental health before they are able to immerse themselves in the wider demands of the curriculum.We use thematic topics to steer and enthuse our pupils, offering them a broad and balanced offer across the length and breadth of the national curriculum at a developmental stage that is appropriate to their needs.
Accreditation and outcomes
During KS4 and KS5 pupils can work towards a variety of accreditation appropriate to their developmental stage.Pupils can work towards accreditation in English and Maths.Further accreditation opportunities across a range of subject areas are built around the interests and career aspirations of our pupils with the aim of preparing them for adulthood.
