Curriculum

Cranleigh curriculum pdfsmall

The Cranleigh curriculum is based on current research and guidelines.

The purpose of curriculum is to develop each student as a learner, person, community member and contributor to society. These student centred set of documents is both a direct and dynamic response to this stated purpose. It is a living document with strong and explicit links to the teaching and learning goals of all our students. A range of evidence based assessment tools are included to guide individual learning plans.

The teaching and learning of Social Skills, Communication, Augmentative & Alternate Communication (AAC), Information and Communication Technology (ICT) are embedded across all areas.

The Cranleigh school community is currently engaged in a university based action research project with a PhD candidate to develop an AAC communication framework.
