About The Fountains Primary School
Fountains Primary School is a special school providing education and support for children aged 2-11 years old. We currently have 196 pupils on roll. This year, 59% of our children have a diagnosis of autism; 19% have a severe learning difficulty; 16% have a moderate learning difficulty and 6% have a profound and multiple learning difficulty.
At our school we have a strong curriculum design which has four curriculum pathways. Each of these ensure that all of our pupils (who are wide ranging in terms of cognition and ability) are challenged appropriately with a bespoke curriculum. Each pathway ignites curiosity and a love of learning. At the heart of each design is a clear vision which is underpinned by our school values, linking to Personal Learning and Thinking Skills.
Our four curriculum pathways are: the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (for our younger pupils); the Engagement Curriculum (for our pupils at the lowest starting points); the Life Skills Curriculum (for our older pupils, usually with Autism) and the Functional Curriculum (for our pupils who follow subject specific learning). Each curriculum is recorded and assessed in different ways.
We strive to enable all our pupils to ‘always achieve their potential’.
