Curriculum Implementation 5 -16

KS1-3 Adapted National Curriculum

At Wargrave on the Adapted National Curriculum strand (KS1-3) we offer Mathematics, English, Creative Technologies (Science and Computing), Physical Education, Personal Development, Humanities (Geography, History and Religious Education), Life Skills and Expressive Arts (Music, Drama and Art and Design).

At Wargrave we have adapted the National Curriculum which identifies what learners should learn at specific ages because this can be very difficult for our learners due to the fact that some of our learners are unable to function and learn at the same rate as their peers because of their Autism. At Wargrave we implement an ‘age and stage’ approach, whereby we will cover the required content suggested by the NC but at a level which is suitable for our learners.

At Wargrave all learners have the opportunity to experience a broad and balanced Life Skills curriculum which covers relationships, sex education, basic first aid and health education including mental health and well-being.

At Wargrave we follow the Gatsby Benchmarks for careers education and implement a careers programme from year 8 onwards including accredited learning courses in employability at KS4.

At Wargrave we always strive to develop our young people and ensure that our curriculum provides opportunities for learners to develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding as well as their knowledge and understanding of British values.

Our Adapted National Curriculum follows a one year spiral to allow for regular revisiting and reinforcement of the curriculum content at an age appropriate level.
