Teaching and learning at St. John’s is more than the delivery of a subject based and compartmentalised curriculum. The complex needs of our pupils will not be met through a curriculum that consists of converting National Curriculum descriptors or ‘P’ scale indicators. Our pupils learn well within a framework constructed of targeted learning objectives based on a personalised individual education plan (IEP) reflecting their EHCP outcomes including Cognition and Learning, Social Emotional and Mental Health, Sensory and / or Physical, Communication and Interaction, Self Help and Independence.
The curriculum at St. John’s is the framework for functional teaching and learning and serves to assist pupils to see themselves as effective learners. At the centre of the curriculum is the process of enabling pupils to interact with others in order to communicate.
