Curriculum Philosophy
Intent
At Bower Grove school all pupils have a right to access a curriculum that is enthralling, meaningful and appropriate to their individual needs whilst not compromising their
entitlement. Lessons at Bower Grove motivate, engage and excite our pupils. Clear routes of progression and development within curriculum planning result in coherence
and continuity throughout the school.

With the complex learning and behaviour needs of our pupils we acknowledge that the needs of each individual are central and that the provision offered should be
sufficiently flexible to enable pupils to be placed at an appropriately challenging point on the continuum at any time during their school career.

Our school works in partnership with parents and the views of parents and pupils are taken into account in achieving the appropriate balance between pupils’ rights to
curriculum access and the need for some to access other experiences such as alternative curriculum, mainstream inclusion, therapy interventions or intensive tuition to
enhance or consolidate core skills and talents. Curriculum development in conjunction with the needs of the individual, strives to ensure maximum progress for all pupils.

Our curriculum aims to:

     -    Ensure that all pupils have access to broad, balanced, challenging curriculum based on National Curriculum.
     -    Ensure quality curriculum content through systematic curriculum planning, monitoring and reviewing procedures.
     -    Ensure that all pupils have access to an appropriately differentiated curriculum.
     -    Ensure that pupils cover Programmes of Study and develop learning strategies needed to transfer between special school and mainstream provision.
     -    Provide pupils with access to accredited courses at Key Stage 4.
     -    Clearly identify progression pathways for children in Year 9 including access to Further Education, vocational courses and work related learning.
     -    Ensure that here is an equality of access to all Programmes of Study.
     -    Promote pupils spiritual, moral, social, cultural and physical development in order to assist pupils in becoming thoughtful and respectful citizens.
     -    Develop independence and life skills through experience and activities such as cooking food, mobility, residentials and work experience.
     -    Prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experience of adult life.
     -    Monitor and assess pupils progress for the purpose of ensuring high standards of achievement.
     -    Engage pupils in understanding how they make improved progress through Assessment for Learning.
     -    Equip our pupils with an understanding of respect for Fundamental British Values.

Implementation
Each curriculum area has a designated subject leader, to oversee its organisation. Long and medium term planning systems enable us to map delivery. There are common
principles throughout the school but as an all age school there are naturally some variations between the organisational needs of the primary and secondary phases of the
school.

KS 1 and 2 Phonics – Sounds-Write is an effective strategy to teaching reading, spelling and writing. It is a multi-sensory approach which aids concentration. The Sounds-
Write approach to reading is phonographic. It starts from what all children acquire naturally and right from the start the sounds of their own language. It teaches that
letters or combinations of letters, called graphemes, are the agreed ways in which we represent sounds when we write.

Primary – In Early Years Foundation Stage the foundation curriculum informs the planning and the Foundation Stage Profile is used to monitor, record and report on
achievement. At KS1 where relevant, pupils continue to address gaps in skills and knowledge from the foundation stage profile. Where pupils are beyond this they move
on to a primary curriculum based on the National Curriculum programs of study. At KS2 the primary curriculum is based on a curriculum model in which core national
curriculum subjects (English, Mathematics and Science) are taught as separate subjects. Foundation subjects are learnt experimentally, following a creative approach to
learning. EHCP’s are managed and monitored by class teachers. The Boxall Profile is an assessment tool used to monitor social and emotional development and
engagement in learning for all pupils. Pupils interventions identified in Provision Plans are delivered as an integrated element of classroom learning.

Secondary – The secondary curriculum is organised a on subject based model with pupils moving to specialist rooms and teachers. At Key Stage 3 pupils follow the National
Curriculum at a highly differentiated level. Additional interventions are used with identified groups and individuals. At Key Stage 4, grouping according to ability occurs in
some subject areas enabling all pupils to be extended whilst allowing pupils needing enrichment activities to be supported through greater differentiation. Accredited
courses are followed in English, Maths, Science, Computing, PE, Art, Technology and Music. Pupils enjoy a creative curriculum and work towards Art Award accreditation.
Throughout the secondary phase class teachers oversee the delivery of provision plans.

In year 11 “My Trust” help pupils prepare for their EHCP transitional review meetings. These highlight areas of strength and need for each individual. The aim is to ensure
that the relevant support and opportunities are accessed in order to achieve competencies and develop the confidence to participate fully in life as independent young
adults. Links with Further Education Colleges and industry enhance the work related learning aspects of the curriculum.

The school actively promotes enrichment activities; however, this may have an impact on curriculum access. Any integration or inclusion programme is explained fully to
parents and pupils with regard to the curriculum impact and parental permission is sought before a programme is embarked upon. Disapplication from the National
Curriculum will only be sought in very exceptional circumstances.

Impact
Along with other KSENT Special Schools, we use Pupil Asset as an assessment tool to measure progress. We also use regular learning walks, work scrutiny and moderation
activities to ensure we have strong evidence of pupil progress.

Throughout the extensive programme of educational visits and residential trips pupils expand their knowledge of the wider world. School Focus days enable pupils to learn
about topics beyond the curriculum. Our creative arts pledge allows pupils to experience and understand a range of cultural activity.

Our curriculum enables pupils to make outstanding progress in all areas of their learning, successfully moving on to a range of post 16 education provisions. Pupils leave
with maximised communication, confidence, self-help and independent life and living skills. Extensive and useful accreditation and qualifications are achieved to enable our
pupils to continue their learning journeys to adult life.

Pupils will experience a cross curricular approach to teaching and learning where possible.

Pupils will also work towards achieving their EHCP outcomes/SMART targets allowing for progress in social, emotional and independent skill development.
