Our Curriculum

Our curriculum at Kisharon School is skill and context based and encourages active engagement in learning.  The curriculum focuses on developing the key skills of communication, cognition, independence, physical development and self-care, all transferable skills that equip children and young people for life beyond the school.

Our curriculum strives to be personalised to each learner, building on individual strengths and interests.  A three year topic cycle is used to support a balance of stimulating contexts for learning through different learning experiences, themes and subjects.

Where suitable, phonics are taught at KS1 using the Jolly Phonics Programme.

We have three core curricula which meet the range of learning needs of all our children and young people.

Students with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) are provided with a specific curriculum which is specifically designed to meet their needs through multi-sensory activities.

Pupils with Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) benefit from a semi-formal curriculum which promotes life-skills and is highly stimulating.

Learners with Autism Spectrum Conditions have a curriculum which aims to motivate and engage them in learning new skills and knowledge.

In addition, children in the Early Years Foundation Stage follow the statutory EYFS curriculum.



The Jewish Studies Curriculum is integrated through the school day and seeks to provide pupils with the knowledge and skills necessary to be active members of the community in which they live.
