Old Hall Special School

Everyone working together to achieve outstanding outcomes for our pupils and families


Creative Curriculum

At Old Hall our creative curriculum provides a thematic approach for all pupils. This includes six topics each year covering History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology and Computing. Although science is also included within the creative curriculum topics to cover Physical Processes, Materials and Life Processes are taught separately covering all three areas of science each throughout the year.

Methodologies, approaches, access and materials are adapted and differentiated according to the individual needs of the children. Personal and social education are given high priority and form part of the individual education for each child.
