Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum 

We are proud to introduce our Curriculum. It has been designed to be exciting, broad and balanced specifically tailored to support Autistic children and young people. 


At Rosehill, we design our curriculum in conjunction with our School Vision:


To provide a specialist provision that enables every learner to achieve the best possible outcomes in learning, social and emotional wellbeing, in order to fulfil their true potential and participate fully in society. Children, young people and their families will have a voice, be listened to, included and empowered, and have access to the right support at the right time from the right people.


Our approach to designing the curriculum is rooted in current research into creating the best possible conditions for all children to be successful. We keep at the heart of learning, that being supported towards greater independence and employability would be life transforming and at Rosehill this support starts early, centring on the aspirations, interests and the needs of the pupils. With high aspirations, and the right support, we believe that children and young people can go on to achieve successful long-term outcomes in adult life.


Ofsted’s Focus on Curriculum

The curriculum is at the heart of the Ofsted framework. Ofsted’s working definition:

  • ‘The curriculum is a framework for setting out the aims of a programme of education, including the knowledge and understanding to be gained at each stage (intent);
  • for translating that framework over time into a structure and narrative, within an institutional context (implementation), and for evaluating what knowledge and skills children have gained against expectations (impact/achievement).’


We consider the framework as part of our curriculum design.


Developing our Curriculum

At our school, leaders and teachers have explored each subject area very carefully, taking time to consider the agreed end points, how learning should be sequenced in order to create the best chances for all pupils to learn effectively.  The most important knowledge has been carefully selected and consideration has been given to how we ensure that pupils will know more and remember more.
