Recovery Curriculum for all
The Recovery Curriculum will be built on the 5 Levers: Relationships, Community, Transparent Curriculum, Metacognition and Space as a systematic, relationships-based approach to address individual gaps in learning and skills.
Classes are typically taught in mixed age groups based on individual needs and dynamics.
Key Stage 2
We offer a topic-based curriculum, we plan learning around a topic which is dictated by the interest of the current cohort, linking as many subjects as possible, giving learners a more meaningful, creative, context-based experience.
We personalise learning by offering specific interventions during our tray time work and also during a timetabled intervention slot. Tray time is also an opportunity to focus on the basic skills, including reading, spelling, comprehension, tables knowledge and recall and handwriting.
We offer a rich, varied curriculum, with a good balance of academic and skill-based learning opportunities. This helps to build confidence, self-esteem and resilience as well as academic abilities. This balance also helps to re-engage reluctant learners back into education, allowing them to discover a love of learning and an enjoyment of education.
