3. How will the curriculum be matched to my child's young person's needs?

At Pokesdown we plan an innovative and exciting curriculum that inspires our children’s learning.  Class teachers plan carefully to ensure they deliver “Quality First” teaching to meet the needs of their class.  They are all sensitive to individual needs. 


Differentiation is planned for, and may involve different learning objectives, teaching styles or adaptation of resources.


Monitoring of progress and assessment opportunities are planned for and these are used to inform future differentiation within the classroom setting.  Class teachers liaise closely with the Special Educational Needs/ Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCo) and support from specialist teachers is sought if needed.


Some additional sessions take place for children with more complex Special Educational Needs/ Disabilities.  These focus on their individual area of need and may take place within a small group or individually.
