How We Teach

The overriding principle at Appleford is to instil children with the confidence to learn.

Our curriculum provides a specialised, multi-sensory approach with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy skills combined with access to the full curriculum.

Therefore, each pupil follows a carefully structured, individualised programme of work designed to remediate difficulties and provide a sound basis for future study. This principle extends to all areas of the curriculum and ensures that our pupils have access to the full range of subjects that will prepare them for adult life.

Our unrivalled ICT provision, which provides constant access to the latest software, allows for progress through the whole curriculum. High levels of adult support, particularly in GCSE an BTEC exams helps our pupils achieve the highest grades.

Small class sizes and highly trained specialized staff create a very positive atmosphere that fully supports learning.
