The curriculum at Fox Hollies is broadly based upon the National Curriculum and designed around themes to give students access to a rich breadth of learning experiences, but content is selected carefully and adapted to be made accessible for all learners, in line with their Educational, Health & Care Plans and to enable all students to reach their potential and develop the independence and functional skills they need to manage and enjoy life beyond Fox Hollies.
Opportunities to develop communication, functional and life skills are embedded throughout the curriculum, as well as arts opportunities, outdoor learning and extra-curricular opportunities, alongside pastoral support from dedicated class teachers, teaching assistants, and our EWB (Emotional Wellbeing) Team who know our students as individuals.
Our themed approach to the curriculum enables students to make connections across skill and subject boundaries and provide ample opportunity to practise key developmental skills for learning, such as developing consistent communication strategies, social, emotional, fine and gross motor skills.
We maintain a flexible, creative and reflective approach to curriculum design to ensure that our curriculum is appropriate, motivating and offers the right level of challenge and support. We seek to provide equal opportunities to allow experience of a curriculum which is broad, balanced, relevant, and reflects cultural diversity.
