Our Curriculum

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum individually tailored to the needs of the young person.

Our ambitious curriculum

At Howard House School, we encourage all students, regardless of their ability, to work hard and reach their full potential by providing them with a challenging curriculum that allows them to stretch themselves.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum individually tailored to the young persons needs. Where possible, this will follow the guidelines of the National Curriculum and we will strive to ensure that the young person works at or towards their appropriate Key Stage.

The curriculum has been expanded to deliver a wide range and differentiated qualifications:

The enrichment programme at Howard House School has multiple aims: close the cultural gap that many of our students have, support and promote good and improving behaviour, encourage a healthy life style and promote good social skills.

The enrichment programme includes educational visits, cultural experiences and residentials. 

Reading and Writing, including Phonics

As reading is the key that unlocks the whole curriculum so the ability to efficiently decode is essential. Howard House School specialises in developing reading skills using Twinkl Phonics. Twinkl Phonics is a DfE validated full systematic, synthetic phonics programme that contains everything you need to deliver phonics teaching to children from the very beginning of learning to read and write to full fluency. It delivers GPCs in a clear and rigorous way so that skills are built progressively over time, ensuring that children have a secure base from which to develop.
