Our Curriculum

The curriculum at Hallmoor School is based on the National Curriculum and the Birmingham Curriculum Statement. All students will be offered a broad and balanced curriculum with individual pathways through school leading to appropriate accreditation linked to pupil’s aspirations and abilities.

The curriculum strives to ensure that students make good progress academically, whilst developing independence skills for later life, and a continued focus on communication in the most appropriate form for the individual.

Students are supported in their learning by a range of teachers and teaching assistants, including subject specialists, and are encouraged to engage in all subject areas to gain a broad understanding of the world.
