‘Give Enough Time for REAL Life Learning’
Our curriculum intent is clear: ‘To meet the individual needs of every pupil’
The curriculum at Mayfield School ensures that all pupils regardless of their starting points have access to an ambitious and personalised curriculum which provides the key skills, knowledge and understanding to facilitate future learning in a challenging, safe and stimulating environment.

Teach Practise Repeat and Master
Pupils are taught knowledge and skills, they are given time to practise, time to repeat and move on once they have mastered. The evaluation of the knowledge and learning pupils have gained against their personalised learning journey is reflected in the evidence for learning throughout the journey of the child and evaluated using personal learning goals and EHCP targets.
Learner’s understanding is checked systematically throughout the Teach, Practise stages and clear feedback is provided to pupils. Teaching is adapted to meet the individual needs of the pupils and on- going review, reflection and assessment supports this.
