Primary Curriculum 


We are commissioned by the Local Authority to take all primary age excluded pupils in the north of Derbyshire. The single registered pupils have a commissioned18 hour full time offer which comprises of both a nurture programme and also our academic programme. The academic content is delivered through continuous curriculum provision (CCP). Pupils engage in half a day of nurture and half a day of academic learning through CCP. See the Nurture and the CCP Long term Plans.

The nurture programme rotates on a 4 week cycle and is based on the Boxall strands. All stands are covered over a 4 week period in nurture based activities. Pupils have multiple opportunities to develop their SEMH skills by following our curriculum which is based on the nurture principles. Each day has a focus on one or two strands. Pupils are assessed every 6 weeks.

The nurture programme has previously been available for mainstream pupils on a dual registered short term half day provision. We currently have one small group of pupils who attend for half days to access the nurture curriculum.   

The academic curriculum content includes english, phonics Read Write Inc, maths, science & discovery and PHRE. Multiple work stations are provided for pupils where they have a choice of activity in each lesson.
