Focus on recognising achievement
Linton School’s curriculum is individualised and flexible, tailored to the learning needs of the individual pupil and enabling those needs to be met.
It supports our vision by giving pupils the opportunity to learn and develop in a supportive environment in which there is a focus on recognising achievement and supporting progression to develop employability skills.
In addition to the academic curriculum, individualised timetables provide opportunities for pupils to withdraw from some lessons to participate in therapy sessions with the Occupational Therapist (OT).
The curriculum is enriched by educational trips and visits, local community links and opportunities within the timetable to engage with new experiences e.g. music workshops, gardening and educational visits.
Our school specialism is outdoor learning
Through our curriculum every young person at Linton School develops employability skills to prepare them for their working life.
Transition and Induction
Many of the young people who come to Linton School have been out of education for a period of time and/or have had negative experiences of school in the past. Our transition arrangements ensure that each young person and their parents or carers are given opportunities to visit the school and meet key members of staff before their formal admission.
An individual Transition Plan is drawn up for each pupil which includes visits to the school, working with current or previous schools and gathering information from various professionals so that we are prepared to fully support the young person from their first day.
