Semi-Formal Curriculum​

The Semi-Formal Curriculum content broadly relates to the ground covered by the Formal Curriculum but the teaching approach will reflect the learning style and special educational needs of the pupils concerned.

We know that pupils learn best when their learning relates to their own experiences and the Semi-Formal Curriculum is based on this.

All children are different; some may learn best through structured play whilst others will learn more effectively with practical activities, and others still may respond better using a topic-based approach.

“In a short space of time, the school’s new headteacher has sensitively galvanised the whole school into action. The clear direction given to the senior leadership team is having a very positive impact”.
