The ethos of the school is one of inclusivity and so all pupils are expected to participate in mainstream classes alongside their peers. The content of lessons will be addressed in the first instance by ‘Quality first teaching’ with materials and tasks suitably differentiated so that all pupils can understand and complete them. Any additional support lessons are run with the agreement of parents/carers. In Key stage 4 pupils with significant needs will follow a modified curriculum in which they follow fewer options allowing for extra literacy and numeracy lessons. In Year 11 this cohort of pupils will take Entry level exams in addition to GCSEs.
