Curriculum Overview Documents

Our school’s curriculum at Cherry Trees is underpinned by our ethos of educating children in the knowledge, skills and understanding that will enable them to lead fulfilling lives and be as independent as possible. It is dedicated to meeting the needs of the individual child.

Our philosophy incorporates flexibility in order that children can access a variety of experiences throughout their time with us. Our curriculum is devised so that pupils follow a pathway that will have the most effective impact on their individual development.

Child centred learning encompasses opportunities for pupils to learn and develop their confidence and skills through a broad, balanced, differentiated, and creative curriculum.

Practical lessons and interactive learning are highly valued and educational visits are a common feature within the school. Through our curriculum we strive to ensure every child has a sense of self-worth and have some understanding of responsibility, self-discipline and an aspiration to employment.

We have high expectations and set aspirational targets that inspire pupils. Our bespoke SOLAR Assessment Programme monitors pupil progress and ensures it continues to be relevant to the individual need.
