Fox Grove will group pupils broadly by age and within their key stage, taking account of their learning style, needs and compatibility. Class groupings will be flexible year on year to take account of the cohort and range of needs. Learners may follow a semi- formal or formal learner pathway. Class group sizes range between 6 and 9 pupils/students. We will create enhanced arrangements for some pupils who benefit from their own teaching space, where they feel safe, but with carefully planned phased integration to other pupils.
Fox Grove semi-formal pathway is for pupils who need highly personalised and specialist approaches due to their specific learning difficulties that need to be addressed as well as strategies for their autism. The semi–formal curriculum will be topic-based to link learning, and activities will be both visual and multi-sensory and follow a familiar structure. Most teaching will occur in small groups, pairs or individually in well-structured rotation of linked activities.
Whilst all our learners will benefit from specialist teaching approaches, catering to their strengths and learning style, due to their autism, Fox Grove formal pathway is designed for learners who can learn by more conventional teaching methods. With adaptations to approach to provide structure and strategies, they can access learning as part of a group and with their peers. Their curriculum will follow more discrete subjects and be both knowledge- and skills-based. They may access standard national assessments for their age, follow programmes of study, and achieve Entry 2 and 3, and Level 1 accreditation.EYFS Curriculum Overview (Year R and Year 1)
