Preparing for Adulthood
Throughout our Preparing for Adulthood (PFA) curriculum we meet the needs of all children, in particular complex SEND.
We focus on the provision needed to achieve and develop EHCP outcomes and we broaden the pupil’s development, enabling them to develop and discover their interests and talents.
Our provision is imaginative yet achievable which is effective at giving our pupils the skills, knowledge and experience they need to progress.
Regularly we liaise with outside agencies, such as the speech and language therapists and the autism team where we discuss how we can support the pupils in making progress and achieve their potential.
Our aim is to raise aspirations and expectations and encourage as independent a life as possible where we focus on outcomes that are transferrable to the real world.
