Curriculum overview

At Brook Academy, we have a vision to advocate for our young people by listening to their voice and designing a programme where young people feel like they can be successful. We are passionate about providing expertise across the SEMH and SEND spectrum so all our pupils are achieving at their level and pace.  Our key focus is to ensure we are addressing all the needs of our young people so they have increased opportunities for personal development.  Brook Academy follows the Preparing for Adulthood curriculum.

We ensure our curriculum follows the statuary requirement of National Curriculum which is holistic. Furthermore, the PRISUM assessment program we use is a skills map that young people need to access their curriculum.

Please look at our curriculum policy, curriculum overview of big ideas as well as all our PRISUM overview.

Alternative learning programmes

Brook Academy does offer some alternative learning programmes. However, it must be stated in the pupil’s EHCP as a target and/or have specific funding allocated to that programme. This is agreed at annual reviews.

We only use local authority approved alternative providers. Please see alternative providers that are GCC approved.
