Curriculum

  • The curriculum at the Lighthouse School has been designed to create learning opportunities that support the students’ progress, both academically and with their needs, as outlined in their EHCP.  Each student has a curriculum that is specifically designed, in some way, to suit their needs.

  • The school focusing on offering a therapeutic package with our own speech and language therapist, counsellor, and a systemic psychotherapist. The curriculum supports this as the day starts with a breakfast and ‘check in’ period, with a ‘check-out’ period at the end of the day. Students have specific timetabled intervention periods which focus on supporting their EHCP needs as well as a specific ‘Zones of Regulation’ session to help students manage their emotions. All students also have a life skills lesson and outdoor learning session, to help enable them to develop important skills including resilience and independence.

    Students are looked at on an individual basis and if deemed necessary, alternative provisions might be utilised. This includes attending offsite facilities such as Horse Riding at Nelson Park Riding Stables (Changing Lives Programme), The Reading Doctor, Revolution Skate lessons, Betteshanger Country Club outdoor sessions and Challenger Troop.
