The pupils within the Engagement pathway are taught through a specially adapted, meaningful topic based curriculum. A great deal of emphasis is placed on promoting independence and developing increased levels of engagement within the five strands of cognition and learning: Exploration, Realisation, Anticipation, Persistance and Initation. Activities are designed to encourage the pupils to respond to the environment and give them access to a purposeful, individualised curriculum that fully meets their specific needs.
Within the Engagement pathway emphasis is placed on developing communication strategies that allow our pupils to ‘have a voice.’ A range of communication strategies are used dependent on the specific requirements of the individual pupil. At Kemball School we have pupils who use Makaton, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), communication books, PODD communication books and high tech communication devices.
From September 2023 the following classes will be in the Engagement pathway: Spode 1 (EYFS), Spode 2, Paragon 2, Bridgewater 2 and Wedgwood 2
