Below in an excerpt from our school's curriculum. If you would like to read the document in its entirety, please click the PDF link at the bottom of the page.

For more information about our curriculum, and our planning and assessment systems, please contact the school. If you are a parent of a child at the school, or considering if Bardwell School is appropriate for your child, we will happily take time to talk with you about the curriculum and visit classes to see the curriculum in action. If you are a teacher, or professional from another school, we do arrange open days for professionals and will be able to provide you with information about this.

Throughout their time at Bardwell School we have 4 key aims for all of our pupils:

  • To learn at the optimum rate and reach their full potential

  • To be able to communicate effectively

  • To maximise their independence

  • To develop self-esteem and confidence

We believe that the above are pivotal to our pupils realising their potential and being active, valued members of their communities.

At Bardwell School we teach in line with all subjects in the Early Years Foundation Stage and from The National Curriculum. This document supports our teachers in differentiating national documents for our pupils and identifying the most appropriate priorities. We also have additional subjects specific to the needs of our pupils.

Our school is organised into 3 departments:

  • The Primary School (including Early Years and Foundation Stage)

  • The Secondary School

  • The Lodge (Post-16)

Detailed later in this document is how we approach and plan learning in each of these departments.

By creating The Bardwell Curriculum we are ensuring our students are:

  • Treated as individuals

  • Provided with meaningful learning opportunities

  • Engaged in activities which they enjoy and which enrich their lives - Supported to learn and make progress

  • Prepared for learning in the future

  • Able to meet their full potential
