Tailored To Our Students Needs
Our curriculum is broadly similar to a mainstream school but classes are smaller (10 students on average) and are often supported by a Teaching Assistant in addition to the Teacher. Any additional Teaching Assistant hours outlined in your daughter’s EHCP or Statement or EHCP do not transfer with her when she joins Limpsfield Grange.
At the start of every term parents will receive a curriculum overview which outlines the areas of study for each year group and each curriculum area. The overviews also give a range of ideas to parents about how to support their daughter’s learning at home.
The curriculum at Key Stage 3 broadly follows the National Curriculum. We review our curriculum offer for each year group annually, so the subjects offered do change, but students usually study the following subjects: English, Maths, Science, Computing, Art, Design and Technology (including Food Technology), Physical Education which includes a session of swimming weekly, Religious Education, History and Geography. Students do not study a Modern Foreign Language. Homework is set weekly in the core subjects (English, Maths, Science and Computing). Further information can be found on your daughter’s homework timetable.
The curriculum for Key Stage 4 students is reviewed as each cohort is in Year 9 and broadly follows the National Curriculum. There are variations each year but students can usually take qualifications in English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, Art, Catering, Health and Social Care and Religious Education.
Live Life Well is a programme which has been designed to provide a tailored approach to developing life skills for all of our students. As well as academic achievement we encourage the girls to develop the confidence and resilience to tackle the challenges of everyday life when they leave Limpsfield Grange. Our Live Life Well programme has activities which provide an opportunity to overcome anxieties using a range of strategies which promote leading and enjoying a more independent life.
