Teaching & Learning

When we talk about the Curriculum we are talking about everything that is learned in school, including pupils’ experiences of our residential facility.  The whole curriculum is about how we work and live together, how we support and encourage each other.

Greenbank School’s curriculum has been developed, changed and improved over the years to offer learning opportunities which result in pupil’s becoming confident learners attaining and achieving in all subjects and becoming as literate and numerate as possible. Pupils develop their independence, social and work related skills and experiences which they will need to lead happy and successful adult lives.

During the school day our timetable offers a similar range of subjects which you would find in any busy mainstream secondary school, and although by comparison we are small, we have thriving and exciting subject rooms for Art, Design Technology, Science and Food Technology. In addition, we have 3 ICT suites, a library, and a PE Department including an indoor pool, a newly built sports hall and extensive playing fields which have an incorporated a cycle track.

In recent years our accommodation has been refurbished and modernised. All 12 classrooms are spacious, well equipped rooms and have been designed in recognition of our pupils preferred learning style.

Whilst the school delivers the National Curriculum, an emphasis is placed on social communication, language development, practical Literacy and Numeracy and PSHCE [Personal, Social, Health, Citizen, Economic]. An essential aspect of our curriculum is the content and the delivery which is differentiated to meet the needs and learning styles of our pupils.

In addition to the day curriculum, some pupils take advantage of our extended day and residential facility.
