How is the Curriculum adapted to meet specific needs?

Greythorn Primary School is committed to meeting the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. Our curriculum aims to provide all pupils with the very best education and support, in order to meet specific needs. It aims to build on each individual’s knowledge, understanding and skills and inspire a passion for learning and a commitment to moving children forward ready for their next stages in learning and preparation for adulthood.

Some curriculum enhancements might include:


Planning which is based on individual children’s prior learning and achievement

Access to additional resources to help ‘make sense’ of learning e.g. concrete resources in maths

Ensuring that our children know what to do if stuck and are confident to ask for support

Proactive use of working walls and clearly accessible resources to aid independent learning

‘Kagan’ learning to support cooperative learning with their peers

Purposeful and appropriate teacher talk, e.g. instructions provided to individuals at a clear and appropriate level and by appropriate means

The use of visuals to support communication

Access to additional, specific ‘enhancement’ support with teacher and support assistants (e.g. Read Write Inc Catch Up, ELSA support, Speech and Language Care Plans, Occupational Therapy / Physio Care Plans)

Access to IT and technology

Assessment procedures that emphasis individual strengths, achievements and those which help to identify specific areas of need.
