The Hollies School Curriculum

The Hollies School Curriculum


At The Hollies we have used our experience and expertise in working with children on the autistic
spectrum to develop an engaging and inclusive curriculum for all our learners. We ‘start with the
child’ focusing on our pupils’ strengths and encouraging them to learn and grow at a pace and rate that
is appropriate for each individual learner. Our assessment procedures have been designed to
enhance our curriculum, ensuring a consistent and cohesive approach to pupil-centred teaching and
learning practices.


Our thematic curriculum offers the breadth and balance of the New Draft Curriculum for Wales, with
engaging themes that provide a framework from within which teachers can plan exciting, interactive
learning opportunities.


The learning environment at The Hollies school is designed to prioritise ‘communication’,
‘independence’ 'social skills' and ‘emotional regulation’; as these enable our pupils to access all other areas of
their curriculum.


All our learners have the right to an education which tries to develop their personality and abilities as
much as possible and encourages respect of other people’s rights and values as well as respect for
the environment (The United Convention on the Rights of the Child, Articles 27 & 28). Pupil well-being
is our utmost priority and we strive every day to ensure that each and every pupil is ‘learning to
flourish’.
