Learning Pathways Curriculum

The Learning Pathways Curriculum

 

Watermill School has developed a broad and balanced curriculum offer based on an adapted National Curriculum and is designed to meet the needs of our pupils.  We have a structured approach to learning and our spiral curriculum aims to create multiple opportunities for pupils to learn skills, practise and apply them in new contexts over time.  We have developed five Learning Pathways; Early Years, Sensory, Communication, Primary and Secondary.
