Supported Curriculum

Learners in our Supported Curriculum Route are based at both the Ffordd Derwen site and at our Grange Road site with access to specialist resources as well as additional learning opportunities within Rhyl High School.

Learners in the supported curriculum route range from age 2 years 6 months up to 19 years old.

A learner in the supported curriculum route has the ability to learn with increasing independence given quality care, support and guidance. The pupils in Ysgol Tir Morfa experience the different stages of development such as the Sensory-motor stage, Pre-operational stage and Concrete-operational at differing ages, and move through these stages at various paces. An older Supported Curriculum learner can work on their own and as part of a team. They are gaining the skills to cooperate and negotiate; displaying empathy and an understanding of equality. A learner in the supported curriculum will access a modified national curriculum, creatively presented, which targets basic skills in a variety of contexts. Health and Wellbeing provision is integral to the supported curriculum with a focus on emotional literacy including breakfast , ‘Cwtch’ – a timetabled nurture provision staffed by a trained trauma informed, emotionally availably adult  and a variety of outside learning opportunities. The supported curriculum route provides the learner with opportunities every day to enjoy active learning, achieve their potential, believe in themselves and express themselves whilst preparing them for independent living, further educational opportunities and employment.

The Curriculum for Wales and the 4 purposes drives provision for all pupils up to the age of 16 with teachers planning for coverage of the six AOLEs on a half-termly topic web.

At KS4 pupils follow WJEC Entry Pathways courses, Princes Trust Achieve Award in Personal Development and Employability and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Careers and Work Related Education is a prominent aspect of supported provision with all learners aged 14+ encouraged to attend work experience.

YTM 6th provision includes accreditation in Essential Skills Communication and Application of Number, BTEC introductory qualifications in Digital Media and Hospitality and Tourism and also the BTEC Sweet level 1 qualification in Personal Growth and Wellbeing. In YTM 6th the Princes Trust Qualification is also extended to a Level 1 Diploma.
