The Woodfield Curriculum Intent


The Woodfield School curriculum has been developed through consultation with students, parents, and our dedicated team of teachers, senior leaders and therapy staff who have a passion for seeing our learners reach their full potential.

We offer two curriculum pathways for pupils:

Pathway 1:

Where the core curriculum offer is adapted to promote deeper learning, generalisation and real-world application. Please see the Pathway 1 Curriculum page for more information about this model

Pathway 2:

Woodfield meets the needs of around 60% of our learners through a differentiated version of the National Curriculum, developed by subject specialists with expertise in special educational needs.

More information regarding the Pathway 2 curriculum can be viewed by clicking the Key Stage 3Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 links to the left, or from the documents you can download at the bottom of this page.
