Primary Curriculum

Our Approach

At Deane Discovery Centre (DDC), we provide a creative and exciting learning journey for pupils across KS1 and KS2. DDC is a small centre with a dedicated, skilled team of teachers, HLTAs, TAs, and a pastoral lead to support our pupils in achieving throughout all areas of their learning journey.

Within our setting, the delivery of curriculum is based around English, maths, RSHE and project work. With all our students having access to enrichment activities based on their needs and personal timetables, giving all students the opportunity for success during their school week. All students are also able to access numerous interventions; sensory play, Lego therapy, SEMH sessions and play therapy.

We provide a bespoke timetable for all our pupils, ensuring to take into consideration all areas of their needs. This may sometimes mean that our pupils are provided with alternate provision that is off-site. Offering forest school, swimming, outdoor education opportunities, play therapy and other alternative provisions.

Our centre-based pupils are split into two classes; Forest, which focuses on a more formal approach to learning and, Ocean, which has a play-based approach. Pupils are placed within the appropriate classroom based on their individual needs.
