School Learner Journeys

Learning for Life [LfL]
Skills for Life [SfL]
Specialist Skills [SS]

Non-subject-specific curricula models focussing on communication, independence, functional skills and social skills.  Students with complex physical, medical and sensory needs follow this pathway.  High levels of support and small groups are key to achievement.


Skills for Life

A semi-formal curriculum model focussing on learning essential skills for life whilst following a broad and varied programme of learning.  Students with significant intellectual or cognitive impairments and communication and perception difficulties follow this pathway.  High levels of support and small groups are key to achievement.

Specialist Skills

A subject-specific curriculum model in which students follow a timetable that focuses on personalisation and the aspirations of the students as they progress through School/College.  The pathway is mainly followed by students who have difficulties around literacy and numeracy and need to develop social skills.

Each Learner Journey incorporates all six Curriculum Areas, is enabled by specific ‘enablers’, focuses on specific skills development relative to the needs of the learners and facilitates learning towards a suite of outcomes which are appropriate for each learning cohort on that particular Learner Journey.

Feedback from parents

Quote Icon St. Piers exceeds all expectations. My daughter is the happiest, most supported and least agitated she has ever been in her entire life! I feel incredibly proud of all of her achievements since she has been at the school; but do not under estimate for a moment, the sheer amount of hard work, dedication and care that has gone into enabling my lovely lady to flourish as she has, both educationally and socially. Thank-you so very much for enriching both her and her families lives…St. Piers Rocks!!
