At Baskerville School the curriculum can be thought of as the total learning experience that a student has as they progress through school. This includes their social, developmental and emotional learning. Our curriculum is carefully designed to reflect the various starting points and experiences of our students, and to ensure that students have access to enriching cultural and social experiences. We have a Baskerville Pledge to offer students a range of enrichment activities to meet this goal. Our curriculum remains as broad as possible for as long as possible, enabling students to reach identified end points, such as transition to supported college placements, and reaching the way-points on the journey to these end points. Our aim is that our students are supported in living as independent, fulfilling and healthy a life as possible, and in contributing to the life of their community.

  • We will ensure the entitlement of each student to access a variety of opportunities to promote academic, social, emotional and physical development.

  • We will use autistic specific, empathetic approaches and an autistic sympathetic learning environment to promote student learning and personal development. We will provide choices and challenges in order to maximise potential and build upon strengths and interests.

  • All the members of the school community are valued equally and work in partnership with parents, carers and the wider community.

  • We will work within a supportive school framework to promote and celebrate individual success, integration into the wider community and prepare students for life after school.
