Zone 1, Individual Learning Plans for pupils with complex educational needs

Zone 1 provides individual learning opportunities for pupils who have multiple complex needs. The curriculum follows an adapted 'Routes for Learning' framework (Welsh Assembly Government, 2006), which has been tailored to meet the needs of the pupils at St Elizabeth's. This is a thematic approach where Individual Learning Plan targets are encouraged to be met through all areas of the curriculum, encouraging knowledge and skills to be considered within a range of contexts and subject areas.

The curriculum areas are:

  • Communication
  • Cognition (including ICT)
  • My World (which incorporates Science, Humanities and RE)
  • Creative
  • Physical
  • Independent Living and Learning Skills

Assessment is completed through the Individual Learning Plan targets and some curriculum targets, that is constantly recorded and monitored through the individual pupils' learning journals. These are on going assessments which capture how individual targets are met, whilst allowing staff to move the pupils forward with their learning.
