The Core Offer

Once at capacity, our core class model will be based on having up to eight pupils with a teacher and teaching assistant, supported by curriculum leads and a multidisciplinary team.

Cardrew Court School will follow the National Curriculum where at all possible, using this as an aspirational baseline, whilst also offering spiral curriculum pathways that allow for individual, small step success the moment a pupil starts at the school.

Our Curriculum will adapt and enhance to give learners the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. We will provide a curriculum that promotes reading, communication, independence, resilience, and self-help skills including ways to support their own positive wellbeing. We support pupils in effectively accessing the curriculum by ensuring EHCP outcomes are fully implemented into the pupil offer – and that the provision includes high quality, therapeutically informed practice to meet pupil need.
