  • Have plans that are sequential and create opportunities for repetition to embed knowledge and skills

  • Facilitate greater fluency, independence, maintenance and transference of skills to varied contexts

  • Provide progression and continuity of learning that is suited to individual needs and outcomes as set out in learners EHCP’s

  • Maximise the learners’ potential in mobility, physical abilities, communication skills, sensory capabilities, resilience and personal independence

  • Incorporate ‘life skills’ into our offer to enable our learners to transfer and apply their learning to ‘real-life’ contexts

  • Encourage each learner to recognise, record and celebrate positive achievements in all areas of personal, educational and community life

  • Promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of learners’ at the academy, and within society
