Children attending Brays School will usually require augmented and modified curriculum opportunities including an overarching mobility curriculum and a sensory experiential curriculum for our more profound learners. Brays School underpins all of its curriculum delivery through continually developing its communication work so that pupils may access their learning in a way personalised to their needs.
The timetable includes a subject based teaching element for key areas of the curriculum and a cross curricular programme of topic based work through which the remaining areas are taught.
Sex education is fully integrated into the curriculum and not isolated, taken out of context, or over-emphasised. The school works in close co-operation with the Birmingham Health Education Unit and uses materials such as `My Body’ and `Health for Life’ which they recommend and which are widely used in Birmingham schools.
Religious Education is provided and a daily act of collective worship forms an integral part of school life. The School is non-denominational and assemblies usually have a religious and moral element, providing an understanding of Christianity and other major world religions.
The thematic approach to Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology and Music adopted by Brays School provides opportunities for every element of the National Curriculum requirements to be studied in contexts that enable relevant and stimulating early learning, exploration and investigation that can be consolidated, embedded and extended throughout the Key Stages supported through a Local Curriculum that is interwoven to provide real experiences, enable personal development and which promotes British Values.
At Brays Schools the staff and children promote and practice British Values. Across the curriculum and in all we do every day, as part of our immersion in the principles set out in the Birmingham Curriculum Statement.
