Semi-formal Curriculum

The Woodlands Academy Curriculum provides a broad and balanced curriculum, underpinned by an in depth knowledge of each individual student, and how they learn. Our semi-formal students have a range of complex obstacles to learning and are working between P4 and end of year 1 expectations.


Our semi-formal students learn best when it is related to their own experience. The curriculum reflects this with the use of a thematic approach incorporating Equals Schemes of Work. The teaching approach reflects the age and learning style of the students concerned. Curriculum coverage allows for concepts to be connected and reinforced through the use of a ‘theme’ with activities which are meaningful and ‘real life’ allowing for a deeper experience. The range of ‘subject areas’ encourage students to combine different areas of learning, skills and understanding.
