Statement of Intent

The Phase 2 curriculum is designed on a three year rolling programme with full differentiation for upper and lower Phase 2 pupils for the four pathways. The curriculum continues to build on the skills learnt in Phase 1. The curriculum has been designed on a topic approach with six themes per year. Each theme is differentiated for different ability levels. Provision has been made within the Phase 2 curriculum for pupils working up to Stage Two and is sufficiently flexible and adaptable to accommodate pupils of all abilities and with different needs. If pupils are working beyond Stage Two in some areas we will look to stretch and challenge their learning, considering mainstream inclusion opportunities.

Phase 2 is split over two sites, with six classes at the main site in New Ash Green and a further three classes at our primary satellite provision Milestone@ Dartford Primary Academy. It is made up of 2 PMLD classes following within the Brook pathway, 1 high needs class following the Stream pathway and three SLC classes following the River pathway. Milestone@ Dartford Primary classes are year 1-6, predominantly working between River and Waterfall.

It is the aim of the Phase 2 curriculum to provide pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum which is appropriate, meaningful and which provides opportunities for all pupils to learn and achieve. The curriculum addresses the need to provide quality teaching and learning opportunities for pupils to develop communication, social, independence, personal and life skills.

In Phase 2 we plan to ensure pupils become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background. We take every opportunity to promote individual heritage and celebrate cultural differences. In every aspect of our teaching we promote British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs. Our aim is to ensure where possible young people understand the importance of respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
