The Equals Formal Curriculum has been designed for children who have learning difficulties to such a degree that they are consistently working at levels considerably below their age-related peers for all of their academic lives across all or most academic areas.
The curriculum, emphasises life need in these areas:
- Language and Communication
- Personal and social development
- Understanding the world
- Life skills
- Creative development
- Physical Development and Healthy Lifestyles
The seven schemes of work are non-key stage specific, so that pupils work at levels appropriate to their developmental stage.
These form a broad and balanced holistic curriculum that fully meets the needs of pupils struggling within a conventional National Curriculum model. As both engagement and motivation are at the heart of each scheme of work, issues relating to challenging behaviour and pupils’ mental well-being are intrinsically woven into the fabric of the whole curriculum from beginning.
