Towards Independence Curriculum

As with the other pathways in school, Towards Independence pathway has the four areas of need from your child’s Education, Health and Care Plan at the heart of its planning on a personalised level:

  • Communication and Interaction

  • Cognition and Learning

  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health

  • Sensory, Physical and Medical


These are used to create Personal Learning Goals in order for your child to gain new skills and knowledge based on what has been learnt before.    This is then taught through the core curriculum consisting of:

  • English (including phonics)

  • Maths

  • Science

  • Computing

  • My Personal and Health Education (including Relationships and Sex Education)


This is then broadened by covering the following areas;

  • The World About Me (including Religious Education)

  • My Independent and Social Skills

  • My Physical Wellbeing

  • My Creative and Performing Arts


The aim is that your child will continue to have the opportunities to develop their relevant skills to ensure they have access to the appropriate opportunities following school to have a fulfilled life.

Regular observations and assessments are made in order to record progress, establish levels of attainment, inform future planning and next steps in relation to individual Education, Health Care Plans.
