Every pupil at Winchelsea has the right to a curriculum which is broad, balanced and relevant to his or her special educational needs.
Our pupils have the same right as all other school students; therefore the programme for all our pupils will include the National Curriculum, unless their Statement of Special Educational Needs specify otherwise.
Winchelsea pupils also have a right to a curriculum which addresses their special needs. It is therefore our policy to:
- Provide a curriculum for each pupil based on the objectives and targets identified in his or her EHCP and Annual Review
- Adopt teaching and learning approaches designed to help pupils gain the maximum possible access to the National Curriculum and a wide range of GCSE or equivalent course
- Help pupils develop confidence and self-esteem by ensuring they experience success and have their achievements recognised and rewarded
- Encourage the development of personal and social skills through an appropriate programme of teaching and pastoral care
