Curriculum Overview

The curriculum at Langham Oaks has been designed to offer a planned and logically sequenced education that is flexible so it can be adapted to meet the individual needs of each pupil.

This personalised curriculum aims to develop the attributes, skills, knowledge and understanding required for pupils to achieve both their academic and personal potential, without limits The curriculum supports pupil’s social and emotional needs, aims to achieve pupil wellbeing and provide access to therapeutic interventions and support when required, ensuring pupils get the right support at the right time.

We organise the school and deliver the curriculum within 3 stages; engage, develop and achieve. This organisation allows us to identify gaps from the stage before and builds on what has already been learnt. As the curriculum develops, the flexibility will allow pupils to remain in part or fully within each stage providing pupils with the necessary qualities, skills and qualifications required to successfully transition to their next stage of learning or employment. At each stage, there is a clear focus on numeracy and literacy as well as developing the skills and traits of self-management, relationships, tolerance and teamwork with an emphasis on promoting learning outside the classroom.

Differentiation will be key to pupil’s progress at Langham Oaks. Pupils arrive with very different experiences of education with different gaps in their learning and a variety of learning styles.

SEMH pupils need every lesson to have either a variety of options, or different ways to complete the same tasks to demonstrate learning. At Langham Oaks it is always useful to have a ‘Plan B’ or alternative if required.

During the achieve stage pupils may be working on a variety of differing qualifications to meet their needs.
