Phonics and Reading Programmes

Key Stage 2/3 - Pupils follow the National Curriculum for England and Wales and use the Project X and Oxford Reading Tree schemes of work for reading as well as guided reading 3 times per week.
We follow a Creative Curriculum at Hope School. We recognise that many pupils have become disengaged with learning in their previous schools and work to ensure that our curriculum fosters a love of learning that will continue beyond the time they spend with us. We work on a three year rolling programme. The themes for each half term are exciting and were chosen by our pupils. More information on what we are currently learning about can be seen in the class pages section of this website. This allows for pupils to receive a rich and varied experience.
Quality first teaching is complimented with intervention that all pupils access. The vast majority of pupils start Hope School working significantly behind what is to be expected for their age. This can be due to poor attendance in previous schools, an extended period of absence from a school setting following exclusion or the needs of the pupils meaning that learning has been lost.
We have a specialist SENDCo, Intervention Co-ordinator, SpLD teacher and highly trained staff who tailor intervention to the individual needs of the pupil.
The Creative Curriculum is inspirational to both pupils and teachers. It makes learning motivational and successful for all involved. It includes not only what to learn but is also based on the learning styles of our pupils and includes the teaching of skills that will show pupils how to learn.
Planning begins with an understanding of the key skills to be developed and the content is selected to support these. All the skills that are developed enable pupils to become good communicators, problem solvers , encourages them to work well with others and ultimately improve their own learning performance.
