The Vine Curriculum - Rationale

All pupils will have an individual learning programme (ILP) that addresses the targets set for each pupil in their Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). These are the skills that are deemed necessary for individuals to access the curriculum alongside their chronological peers. These EHCP targets will be referred to in pupils’ statutory reviews.

Pupils in The Vine will be following individual needs led programmes of study in order to develop their basic literacy and numeracy skills.

The two class groups follow topics and themes that their chronological peers will be following; some pupils will be able to access sessions in the year group classrooms, some will be able to follow this work in the Vine, and some pupils will have differentiated work specifically set for pupils within the Vine. Please see the attached curriculum maps attached.

For mathematics pupils follow the White Rose Maths Scheme at an appropriate level to pupil needs and abilities.

Please note that literacy also includes augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) techniques such as the use of voice output communication aids, signing, PECS, the use of symbols, direct access boards.

We follow, as does the rest of St Paul’s, the Little Wendle phonics scheme to help develop reading skills; however, we also employ a whole word approach[i] for those pupils for whom it is necessary.

Vine pupils have their achievements recorded using the PIVATS system. The following PIVATS elements are recorded and reported: reading; writing; speaking; listening; using and applying mathematics; number; shape, space and measures; behaviour for learning; emotional awareness; personal independence and self-help; and social awareness and relationships.



[i] There is considerable research showing that many people with ASD benefit from a whole word approach to learning to read rather than a phonics based approach.

 

The Vine is split into two registration groups, Bluebell and Daisy. Younger pupils tend to be in Bluebell group, and older pupils in Daisy.

In the spring term we learnt about the RMS Titanic. We recorded our findings by making a stop motion animated film.
