Semi Formal Curriculum
Woodfield meets the needs of the majority of our learners through a differentiated version of the National Curriculum, developed by subject specialists with expertise in special educational needs. This provision aims to develop non-academic skills such as behaviours for learning through consistent delivery of personalised strategies throughout the school, to promote students generalisation, perseverance, confidence, sense of self and emotional wellbeing through a secondary model. As pupils develop through the key stages, the curriculum becomes progressively focused around functional and vocational skills, and transferring knowledge, skills and understanding beyond the school.
Woodfield’s Semi-Formal Curriculum is to meet a new population of learners with SLD. The curriculum is developed to focus upon meaningful progress against each learner’s outcome statements within their Educational Health and Care Plan. With the new generation of children with complex learning difficulties and disabilities, there needs to be a new generation of pedagogy and assessment.
