Curriculum Aims

Curriculum goal

The School’s Curriculum Goal is “to provide all students with the appropriate qualifications, skills and values to equip them for life”.

National Curriculum

At the heart of the Darrick Wood School curriculum is the National Curriculum. This is designed to enable all students to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges of the rapidly changing world in which they live. Students should leave school having become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. The NC establishes a coherent framework to promote study, building on previous learning and becoming more demanding as students move through the School.

The Darrick Wood School Curriculum

The Darrick Wood School curriculum has two broad aims.

  1. To provide students with the opportunities to learn and achieve.
  2. To prepare students for the responsibilities and experiences of life.

In achieving these aims the curriculum should provide appropriate challenges for all students in ways which satisfy the diversity of their needs (including those in the Deaf Centre), so that opportunities for their inclusion in mainstream lessons are maximised.
