The intent of the Transition pathway curriculum is to provide a semi-formal, thematic curriculum, that provides both subject-specific knowledge and skills, delivered in purposeful and motivating ways, as well as a personalised curriculum for each student as learning is focussed around EHCP targets.
Teachers will provide a mixture of focussed work and practical learning opportunities to allow students to become confident communicators and learners, through a breadth of curriculum experiences, community access and opportunities that develop them academically, socially and emotionally, as well as developing their life and self-help skills, preparing them for the next steps in their learning journey and their future lives.
Teachers have worked collaboratively to identify the rationale for each segment of the curriculum. This is the foundations of the learning that we are working towards within the Transition Pathway. From here, learning is personalised for individuals.
The Transition Pathway curriculum is based around six curriculum areas that include National Curriculum subject coverage and EHCP outcomes. These areas allow students opportunities to develop their subject specific skills and knowledge, through a range of formal and practical activities, whilst also working towards their individual outcomes. The thematic curriculum allows for a broad and balanced curriculum to be delivered with a common theme threaded through the lessons, with Communication, Interaction and Literacy and My Thinking and Learning areas embedding Literacy and mathematical skills across the whole curriculum. Weekly lessons also include students going out in the community for a range of activities and experiences. These are made accessible to all.
