Teaching and Learning


A ‘KTS Curriculum’ has been designed specifically for the pupils at KTS. This curriculum ensures continuity and consistency across school, as well as making it easier to monitor what is being taught and ensure high standards are being maintained, resulting in the best possible outcomes for our pupils. 


When devising the KTS Curriculum, many different curriculums were researched and reviewed, from other SEND schools as well as mainstream schools. Agencies were also consulted including the speech and language service and occupational therapy service. Based on the information that was gathered, the KTS Curriculum was developed. 


There are 2 Curriculum Pathways 

  • KTS Developmental Curriculum 

  • KTS Formal Curriculum 

All class groups will follow one of the curriculum pathways, however there may be pupils within the class group who need individual timetables based on the other curriculum.
