The Meadows’ curriculum focuses on enjoyment and engagement in learning.  It has a clear purpose on ‘getting it right for everyone’ by ensuring that learning is personalised to the needs of our learners.  It is characterised by a broad, balanced, relevant, holistic and personalised curriculum, which accommodates and supports the needs of our learners, so they can reach their potential – learning and preparing today, for tomorrow’s new journeys and destinations.  Communication, wellbeing, independence and enjoyment are the key drivers: we want our students to be happy, to feel safe, to achieve their potential and to feel valued as a member of the community.

 

We currently offer internal work experience for all students, either as part of careers week, through jobs on site, or to support their class group.  In Key Stage 4 roles are developed as students engage with volunteering roles to support the Duke of Edinburgh awards.  In Key Stage 5 employability and enterprise are a key learning area in ASDAN awards.  Some students will also have an opportunity to work offsite with one of our employer partners, either as a one day taster session or a longer term placement.
