Curriculum Intent

At Maple Medical PRU every child is recognized as a unique individual and we celebrate and welcome differences within our school community.

Our curriculum is designed to recognize personal barriers to learning, allow all children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and be equipped for return to mainstream, the world of work and / or parenthood.

The ability to learn is underpinned by the health and wellbeing of the child, being able to remove barriers to learning, the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values.

We provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.
