Rosebank SchoolLearning Together, Celebrating Success


Our Curriculum

At Rosebank School we have an ambitious vision for each and every one of our children. Our curriculum is underpinned by specialist autism specific approaches to match the learning style and strengths and interests of the children and to reduce barriers to learning.

We acknowledge that children progress at different rates and have different starting points. Nevertheless, we are fiercely ambitious for the progress they will achieve not only academically but also in developing independence skills, social interaction and communication during their time at Rosebank School, providing each child with the skills they need to succeed.

All children at Roseank School follow the National Curriculum which is adapted in order to meet the needs of the individual. Topics are taught across key stages following a four year rolling programme.  This ensures that our curriculum is both rich and deep. Opportunities are provided for the children to generalise their skills in different environments in school and beyond.

Throughout the curriculum there are opportunities for children to develop their interpersonal skills by working and cooperating with other children and adults. We aim to build self-awareness, self-esteem and self-confidence, and to inspire and motivate the children to achieve their very best in all aspects of school life. The Autism Education Trust (AET) Progression Framework ensures that emphasis is placed on this aspect of our children’s learning and development.

In Key Stage 1, alongside their academic learning children are encouraged to develop independence life skills at an age appropriate level. Before the start of Key Stage 2 we strive for all our children to be using near age appropriate independence and problem solving skills. This ensures that they are ready for the increased rigour of Key stage 2.

All pupils at Rosebank School have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP). The table below explains how this underpins the Rosebank Curriculum:
