Curriculum Overview

Brookfield School believes that every pupil deserves the opportunity to follow a curriculum that is tailored to their individual needs, aspirations and interests. Our curriculum aims to inspire and motivate across a wide continuum of need. Each pupil is assessed upon entry and provided with an appropriate curriculum offer based upon their immediate needs and long term goals.

Whilst most pupils follow a typical high school curriculum, some are more suited to the vocational and practical elements on offer. Our KS4 site in Fleetwood provides excellent alternative options underpinned by a core curriculum of Numeracy, Literacy, Physical Activity and Cultures, Ethics, Morals and Values (CEMV).

We provide a curriculum that is tailored to individual pupils and is linked to career aspirations and interests in order to maximise engagement and outcomes for each individual. Pupils following a bespoke timetable meet core expectations and a specific offer that is progressive, reflective and linked to their EHCP. The pathway and progression plan is agreed by parents and supporting professionals upon entry.
