Regency’s curriculum aims to encourage all children to be:

  • Successful learners – who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • Confident individuals – who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • Responsible citizens – who make a positive contribution to society
  • Independent Learners – who strive to be as independent as they are able to be
  • Confident Communicators – who are able to make choices, have opinions and be heard

Including All Learners

In order to achieve its aims, the curriculum responds to the learning needs of the pupils

  • Teachers ensure that they create effective learning environments that promote concentration and motivation, ensure that teaching approaches match the learning needs of the pupils, use appropriate assessment approaches and set individual targets for learning for all pupils.

Overcomes potential barriers to learning

  • Teachers take specific action to provide access to learning and enable all pupils to participate as fully and effectively as possible. This may involve the provision of alternative means of communication, symbolic support to aid literacy, technological aids, ICT adaptations, appropriate seating, multi sensory teaching approaches, behaviour plans and environmental adaptations to overcome sensory difficulties.

Effective Teaching and Learning

  • In order to achieve its aims, curriculum delivery also ensures that it builds upon appropriate characteristics of personalised effective teaching and learning strategies.

The Developmental Skills Curriculum

The Developmental Skills Curriculum is designed to meet the needs of students with profound and multiple difficulties (PMLD); it is based around a multi-sensory approach to all topics and activities. The curriculum is personalised for each student based on assessments of individual needs. A range of assessments are used to identify personal targets. These personal targets focus on the following curriculum areas:

•           Communication

•           Cognition

•           Physical

•           Self Care and Independence

Most skills identified from the Developmental Skills Curriculum will need to be worked on continuously, that is during regular individual sessions and generalised in group sessions.

As most of the pupils will be working from the Developmental Skills Curriculum for the whole of their schooling, work on similar skills will be covered in all classes. However, progression is achieved as far as possible by using different contexts for learning through the key stages:

•           Key Stage 3: topic based curriculum, modified from the National Curriculum

•           Key Stage 4 and 5: NOCN Personal Progress.
