Springwell School 'NEW SPARKLE CURRICULUM'
Sam and Jane have been working together this term, creating a new ‘Sparkle Multi-Sensory Curriculum’ for Lion Class and Pangolin Class. Our new curriculum will start in January 2019 and it will be fantastic for our children.
Sparkle curriculum will be delivered in a multi-sensory, creative way which will enable pupils to access learning using their senses through a holistic approach. It has been designed for our pupils with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) and Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) who require specialised management for physical disabilities, sensory impairments and complex medical needs.
The SPARKLE CURRICULUM will be:
· MOTIVATING Our pupils learn when they are interested, stimulated and engaged.
· RELEVANT It is relevant to the learning styles of the pupils and takes into account their prior knowledge and learning needs.
· CHALLENGING All teaching staff have high and realistic expectations of the pupils and with specialised, inclusive teaching — progress is evident.
· FOCUSED Shared targets from EHCP, physiotherapists, SALT etc. are central to the pupils provision.
Our Sparkle Curriculum, endeavours to provide our pupils with motivating experiences and activities that will ensure a high level of engagement.
Pupils following the sparkle curriculum require a high level of adult support, both for their learning needs and also for their personal care. They need sensory stimulation and a curriculum broken down into very small achievable steps.
This new curriculum will predominantly be made up of sensory themed learning and therapeutic activities. More time will be spent on more beneficial, holistic and individualised activities e.g. positioning in specialised equipment, visual stimulation, hand and finger work (exploration – sensory play), therapies, movement, relaxation, Tac Pac, story massage etc.
