Curriculum

The Learn to Live Federation vision is that:

Everyone has a voice

No one is excluded and

Everyone will be the best that they can be.

This drives our teaching and learning.  We provide sequenced curricula for our core subject areas of English, Communication, Maths PSHE and also for PE. These allow teachers to tailor learning to individual strengths and needs,  challenge pupils and encourage aspirations, with the development of our vision at its core.

Pupils’ learning across the Learn to Live Federation is not limited to academic subjects. Pupils enjoy wide-ranging, fun activities and experiences that broaden their learning. We provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced, personalised, motivating and inspirational, engaging and fun. A curriculum that provides first hand, practical and creative opportunities, that allows for pupil independence and choice, helping pupils to learn the skills, knowledge and attitudes that are necessary for them to live as rich a life as possible. A curriculum that leads to the best life chances.

Throughout the school, staff provide a consistently responsive and effective learning environment, within which every learner’s ability to communicate is respected, responded to and developed. We aim to provide a happy learning environment which enables our pupils to grow in confidence and interact socially. Everything we do starts with the pupil, a thorough knowledge of them and a determination to meet their learning needs in the most meaningful way.

We work closely with pupils, their families and other professionals to provide a holistic approach to learning.  One page profiles, communication charts, home school agreements and person centred annual reviews taken from our Core Promise tool kit (see Core Promise policy) ensures that teaching is responsive to individual learning styles and all learners.

Our carefully constructed curriculum provides learning opportunities to match the full range of learner’s aspirations and capabilities building on prior knowledge and experience. We celebrate the endeavours and achievements of all our pupils and hope that they enjoy their learning.

Everyone will be the best they can be; Everyone has a voice; No-one is excluded.
