Curriculum Statement and SEN
Heltwate school provides a curriculum suitable for children and young people within the SLD/MLD cognitive range as described below, their ability to make progress will be limited across all areas of development. They may have a lifelong learning disability which requires a multi-disciplinary service response. Children which have been assessed using standardised testing of cognitive functioning will be performing below the 1st percentile. For primary age children, National Curriculum attainment levels will predominantly be in the range P6 to Level 1(old NC) (principally in PSHE, English and Maths)
Children, joining Heltwate, will be functioning at significantly below their chronological age, i.e. below half their chronological age in most areas of development. They may have an inconsistent development profile. A differentiated and personalised curriculum will be provided to meet their significant needs. The opportunities for independent learning and activities may be limited.
