Thematic curriculum overviews
At Huckleberry Therapeutic School we encourage children to develop an enquiring mind and a love of learning. We aim to help them realise their full potential and become confident, happy, independent members of our school community.
The thematic curriculum promotes high quality learning through engaging topics and it is sequenced to provide a clear framework of progression in skills and knowledge to equip children for the next stage of their education. We personalise the curriculum to ensure that we are not only meeting the academic needs of the children but more importantly their personal, social and emotional needs.
A curriculum for OUR school
We have carefully designed the thematic curriculum to ensure there is appropriate coverage of the National curriculum subjects, in a way that reflects our school community and supports our values and ethos as well as covering the programs of study in the National Curriculum. We also then identify and focus on what OUR children need to learn. This takes into account:
> The development of their awareness of their own personal safety. This includes when online and also our in the community.
> The development of their emotional regulation and becoming more aware of their needs.
> The development of their relationships with both peers and adults.
Review and development
We review and update the Curriculum Framework at the end of each school year, taking into account feedback from staff and pupils. This keeps our curriculum fresh and up to date, and allows us to link projects, outside initiatives and national developments etc into the learning
