Curriculum

Each Kite Ridge School student follows a bespoke curriculum tailored to their own individual and specific needs. Students are taught in group sessions when able to and also on a one to one basis by Learning Mentors and teachers. Some students are also taken out for work experience sessions at a number of placements within the local community such as Retail Shops, Riding for the Disabled, Road Farm and All Saints Church to prepare them for adult life in the wider community. Furthermore, students are taken to weekly swimming sessions at the local swimming pool or at a hydrotherapy pool. Music therapy is also provided as part of the curriculum on a weekly basis, either in group or individual sessions.

Religious Worship

Students at Kite Ridge have a religious assembly once a week where beliefs of all religions are discussed and taught. This will often be taught through a video, a story or a physical item. All students are welcome to these assemblies. 

We have, in the past, received fortnightly visits from Ruth Harley from a local church who would lead our religious assembly. Ruth also kindly allowed three of our students to visit the church to take part in some work experience, this accessing of the community was extremely valuable to these students. Ruth's work with our school was written about in Oxford Diocese newspaper and now features on their website.
