Intention

At Cavendish View, we strive to equip our children with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to become fully active participants in an ever-changing world. Our pupils have a range of additional needs, and our curriculum is planned to incorporate individual needs whilst maintaining the highest aspirations for all of our pupils.

Implementation

The curriculum builds on each child’s prior knowledge and understanding. At the start of each topic or unit of work, children contribute to their content by completing a subject knowledge audit. These are devised to take into account the knowledge and skills that have been covered previously so that teachers can address any existing misconceptions and build on prior knowledge. We work alongside a range of professionals to ensure all of our children are accessing our curriculum at a level suitable to their age and stage of development. This includes work with our in-house Speech and Language Therapist and a Play Therapist who works on-site each week.

Impact

We review the impact of our curriculum through robust monitoring procedures, such as data analysis, work scrutiny and learning walks. Actions arising from these are addressed in staff meetings and supervisions, to ensure reflective practice and accountability of all staff. We also hold regular strategy meetings and gather the views of parents, staff and pupils through questionnaires that we distribute each term to monitor the impact and effectiveness of all that we do.

Curriculum

Mathematics Curriculum

We want our children to become confident and competent mathematicians who can apply maths skills in real-life contexts. We teach our children to understand key concepts in maths by planning lessons that meet each child’s age and stage of development.

PSHE Curriculum

We want our children to leave Cavendish View equipped for the challenges that lie ahead and ready to be active participants in society. Through our curriculum we aim to prepare our pupils for a range of different social situations and equip them with key life skills they will need to thrive in the rapidly changing world.

English Curriculum

We aim to equip our children with the skills they need to develop their independence and participate in society. We work to develop key skills in literacy, such as basic grammar and punctuation, we are striving to cultivate our children’s love of reading for pleasure.We immerse pupils in a world of stories, so they begin to understand not only the joy of reading, but also how writer’s achieve their desired impact through language choice and character portrayal.
