EAST SPECIALIST INCLUSIVE LEARNING CENTRE

Curriculum

At the East SILC, we offer a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum that is ambitious for all learners, develops independence, and meets individual student needs. Our curriculum is driven by the need to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that are the building blocks for later life.  This is achieved through the subject-specific and non subject specific curricula.

The East SILC curriculum encompasses the requirements of the National Curriculum, but goes beyond the experiences of the classroom to ensure that our students develop the skills required to apply their learning in a range of environments and contexts. This is achieved through our readiness for learning and preparation for adulthood curricula.

The curriculum is further enhanced by our commitment to developing cultural capital so that students are able to link their learning with real experiences. This is achieved through our Preparation for Adulthood curriculum.

The aims of our curriculum are to:

  • Promote the independence of all students, encouraging them to take ownership of their own development.
  • Prioritise preparation for adulthood and ensure that students have the required knowledge, skills and understanding to make a meaningful contribution to wider society.
  • Develop reading, communication and oracy in all areas of the curriculum.
  • Fulfil the requirements of an adapted National Curriculum.
