At Nigel Bowes Campus we provide a stimulating educational experience which motivates pupils to engage in the learning process enabling them to make the best possible progress in all areas of their development.
Pupils are taught in small groups with a high staff to pupil ratio. There is a high emphasis on the development of emotional well-being and social skills enabling pupils to form good working relationships with staff and pupils. Personalised learning programmes are available to all children meeting specific individual needs fully promoting self esteem and efficacy.
Specialist teaching and pastoral staff work with the pupils to improve their emotional regulation through a wide range of support strategies.
The intent of the Nigel Bowes curriculum is;
To provide a wide range of engaging learning opportunities enabling pupils to make progress towards achieving their personalised goals, equipping them with the skills and attributes needed to become resilient, safe and respectful citizens.
How we implement our curriculum
We offer an engaging, broad and balanced curriculum, addressing the under-lying issues that are barriers to learning. This enables pupils to develop core skills, knowledge and understanding which helps them to achieve outstanding rates of progress and close any gaps towards age-related levels of attainment.
We teach all National Curriculum subjects using a wide range of resources and teaching methods to engage our pupils. Particular focus is given to the development of key literacy and numeracy skills, improved levels of attention and concentration, social skill development, emotional health, well-being and self-regulation. Personalised learning programmes are available to all children meeting specific individual needs and making progress against the outcomes on their Education Health and Care Plans.
Medium term and weekly plans are developed from the long-term planning outlined in the NBC curriculum maps. Teachers use Hamilton Trust, Twinkl Planit and Read Write Inc. (phonics) to enhance the quality of learning provided.
The expected impact of our curriculum
Pupils have made progress towards achieving their personalised goals enabling them to continue their journey to becoming resilient, safe and respectful citizens.
