Intermediate Department

Children progress from our Reception Classes to our Intermediate Department .

We continue to focus on communication, access to the curriculum and mobility, and work towards the children becoming as independent as possible.

We aim to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum through a termly topic that is matched to the children’s individual abilities. We follow the British National Curriculum, but tailor it to suit the needs of the young people. The subjects studied within this department are:
● English or Arabic (dependent on the stream)
● Numeracy
● History
● Geography
● Art and design
● Music
● Physical education (PE), including swimming (for most classes)
● Computing
● Personal and Social Development
● Cultural Awareness / Islamic Studies

Physiotherapy, occupational and speech and language therapies are also integrated throughout the school day.
