Years 3-6 - Adapted National Curriculum

The primary department introduces learners to a range of different learning activities. Areas of learning are closely linked and are from the Foundation Stage of learning and the National Curriculum. This department works in line with other departments focusing on specific themes. Read more about our adapted curriculum and how we tailor it to meet the specific needs of pupils.

Due to the individual and unique learning abilities of each student, results are looked at on an individual basis. This information provides an overview only.

Targets set are based on progression guidance and are aspirational in line with our ambitions for all young people. Each student has an individual target to aim for based on their previous year's performance and starting point.

There are no key stage 1 pupils and only 3 key stage 2 pupils for the academic year 2016-17. 

Literacy and Numeracy 

Student and staff working in classroomAll of the key stage 2 pupils made close to or greater than half a P-level's progress in Literacy.

In Reading: 2 of the 3 pupils made greater than 85% progress. 1 young person made less progress than their peers and did not manage to meet their target, this young person is a concrete learner and has found the more abstract concepts in P5 more challenging to embed.

In Writing, 1 young person made 58% progress of a P-level, 2 young people made lower progress. Upon analysis, some young people do not have the fine motor or muscle tone to meet the assessment criteria. A goal for Literacy is to identify the non-writers and work further on developing pre-writing skills in conjunction with therapeutic work.
