This academic year all eligible pupils have been disapplied from SATs. Pupils are assessed in depth by teachers and progress is evidenced through our bespoke tracking systems. These include development matters, phonics, p levels, MAPP, rainbow tracking and external accreditation.
Beverley School's Curriculum Offer
Beverley School's curriculum for Phase l and Phase ll is constructed around the 'Cornerstones Curriculum'. This allows for a project based approach and the promotion of cross curricular links.
Our pupils follow Schemes of Work (SOWs) that have been selected to ensure that their academic ability is met and our skilled teachers differentiate the work accordingly.
In Phase lll, a vocational curriculum has been developed to underpin the academic subjects so that our older pupils can learn and experience valuable subject specific knowledge, vocational skills, life skills and gain a range of accreditation.
Underlying our curriculum is the promotion of social communication, independence and management of behaviour. Our pupils are supported to become independent learners and engage in a range of learning experiences which address their difficulties in language and communication, social interaction and rigidity of thought.
Embedded into our curriculum offer are a range of programmes and interventions to address sensory dysfunction, behaviour, gross and fine motor skills.
We currently commission an Educational Psychologist, Jane Boyd (Pegasus Psychology), a Child Psychologist, Gill Murray (CATs) and an Occupational Therapist, Dawn Dunn (Tree Tops), all of whom work a day a week within school with targeted pupils. We also have speech and language support through the health service. Nikki Joyce is our Speech and Language Therapist and her Speech and Language Assitant is Helen Carr.
Within our everyday teaching we incorporate specific interventions for individual or groups of pupils such as BLAST, Catch Up Maths, Catch Up Literacy, Lexia, Primary Movement and Write Dance.
