Our Curriculum Overview & Structure

big ideas

The Fountaindale Curriculum is carefully designed to address the needs of every pupil. We believe that we have created a curriculum that puts meeting and developing communication, wellbeing, independence, sensory and  physical needs at its heart. Our curriculum encompasses the preparing for adulthood outcomes that include opportunities for; Employment, Independent Living, Community Inclusion and Health.

Our learning is driven through Rosenshine’s Principles which allow a structure to lessons that builds, reflects, revisits and reinforces knowledge and skills to ensure schemas are built and developed upon. Imaginative learning projects establish disciplinary knowledge which lead to substantive knowledge rich projects securing transferable skills and information into adulthood.

Through our six Big Ideas; Humankind, Nature, Place and Space, Exploration, Creativity and Rights, we ensure that our curriculum is intertwined, structured and builds on prior learning.
