How does the school meet pupils special needs ?
School curriculum provides a specialized, multi-sensory approach with an emphasis on basic literacy and numeracy skills combined with access to the full National Curriculum.
Therefore, each pupil follows a carefully structured, individualized programme of work designed to remediate difficulties and provide a sound basis for future study. This principle extends to all areas of the curriculum and ensures that the pupils have access to the full range of subjects that will prepare them for adult life.
Whereas in mainstream education pupils study Key Stages according to their chronological age, at Appleford they study according to their individual needs. Consequently, Key Stage 1 material is available in the Lower School for those pupils who still need to master the most basic skills even though they are of an age that normally suggests the teaching of a Key Stage 2 curriculum.
Appleford School 6th Form Centre
Following a successful year with the first ever Lower Sixth pupils at Appleford, Appleford School has extended the Sixth Form provision through new facilities and an enhanced package of curriculum options. Pupils are able to enter Lower 6th to study a range of vocational and academic courses with the option to retake and upgrade their GCSEs. Benefiting from the dedicated teaching block with individual ICT access and the expertise of highly qualified specialist teachers, students are working towards gaining the qualifications needed to enter employment, Further Education or University.
