The SHINE curriculum has been specifically designed for our learners with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties. We have created a video that demonstrates some of the activities students on the Cedar Pathway access in school. Hopefully these activities will give you inspiration for some fun activities to try at home!
The SHINE curriculum is:
Motivating - Pupils learn when they are interested, stimulated and engaged;
Relevant - relevant to the learning styles of the pupils and takes into account their prior knowledge and learning needs;
Challenging - high and realistic expectations are held by everyone in the team and inclusive teaching that ensures progress for all pupil’s is evident;
Focused - Shared Goals Targets/EHCP targets should be central to all aspects of provision.
Pupils with PMLD will have a focused curriculum- the four main areas are:
Communication and Interaction
Knowledge and Understanding
The curriculum is delivered in a multi-sensory, creative way, taking into account their Engagement Profile, which will enable pupils to access their learning using their senses through a holistic approach. Pupils follow individual programmes and access differentiated interventions according to their level of need. Targets are set in conjunction with therapists, education staff and parents/carer’s in order to cater for these individual needs in an appropriate functional way.
