Our Curriculum Statement of Intent 

At Kemball School our aim is to develop independence and the skills needed for learning and life. 

The curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of our pupils.  It aims to provide motivating and relevant learning to maximise pupils’ engagement and support progress.  We strive to deliver wide and varied learning experiences that support the development of functional skills, independence and personal development.  We recognise pupils’ Education, Health and Care Plans, prior learning, provide practical/multi-sensory experiences, build resilience, develop communication and help every child to achieve their potential.  

 Our Curriculum Implementation 

The curriculum has been designed in line with Rochford Review recommendations.  The topic based approach provides stimulating learning experiences and links concepts in a meaningful way.  The curriculum is differentiated at four levels:  Multi-sensory pathway, engagement pathway, progression pathway and functional pathway.  This meets the needs of our different cohorts of pupils ensuring that they access the learning experiences that are relevant and appropriate to them.  


Our curriculum enables the pupils to make outstanding progress in all areas of their learning so that they can move onto Post 16 provision and a life beyond school.  Our aim is that pupils leave Kemball with the communication, confidence, self-help and life skills that support overall independence.  Functional accreditation and qualifications are achieved to enable our pupils to continue their learning journeys into adult life.
