Exploring curriculum intent, implementation and impact.
We explore moving from non-subject specific learning to subject specific learning for those pupils with severe and complex learning difficulties, who are becoming more neuro-diverse and therefore present with a greater range of need. We share what a curriculum can look like based on the drive for a more personalised new generation pedagogy with a more holistic approach to assessment.
- understand the key curriculum needs of pupils with severe and complex learning needs and how to assess learning; including looking at models of assessment currently being used in schools.
- understand how to profile your current cohort of pupils learning needs and use the information to inform the design of your curriculum; including introducing a sensory profile tool and the importance of thinking skills in learning
- have insight into leading change and the organisational implications of implementing a pre-subject (semi-formal) speciﬁc curriculum
- develop an awareness of the curriculum aspects of the proposed 2019 Educational Inspection Framework (EIF)
- take away practical suggestions on how to deliver a pre-subject speciﬁc curriculum in the classroom including multi-sensory approaches to learning
- explore how to assess progress
- discover the importance of learning environments and understand how to create rich sensory environments which will support cognition and learning and further engage learners
