The Ingfield Manor curriculum is based on the theory and practice of Conductive Education (CE). It's designed to develop children’s independence, communication and mobility across all Key Stages.
The holistic curriculum ensures that motor learning is embedded throughout all areas and activities. The daily motor learning programmes ensure that skills learnt at that time can be applied throughout the whole learning day.

We are continually developing a skills-based curriculum which encourages problem-solving and the ability to reason. We do this by generalising specifically-taught skills in different learning situations. This applies particularly to communication and understanding, as we provide many opportunities for students to practise their skills off-site, in real-life situations.
We continuously assess pupils’ technology needs. This includes seating and accessing needs. Individual needs are monitored and modified as the child grows and learns.
Communication plays a key part in being able to access the curriculum.
Pupils who use AAC follow a programme to develop ‘linguistic, operational, social, and strategic competencies’ and this is embedded within the whole curriculum. AAC skills are taught within group or individual communication sessions, and then practised and applied throughout the school day.
We typically use Picture Communication Symbols (PCS) at Ingfield, incorporating these into communication books and software (with VOCAs and PCs).
We also use Ingfield Dynamic Vocabularies (IDV’s), which are a system of grids. These were devised and developed at Ingfield, and are now nationally recognised.
In 2017 we won a national 'Shine a Light' award for our work in AAC.
Pupil Premium: Pupil premium aims to close the gap in attainment between disabled pupils and their peers. At Ingfield, all pupils are disabled. Pupil Premium eligibility is not the limiting factor, we use pupil premium to maintain and enhance existing provision by:
