Alma

Some of our children, who particularly benefit from an even more personalised approach, learn through our Alma Curriculum. This is based on the MSI Curriculum – developed at the MSI Unit at Victoria School, Birmingham and published by SENSE.

The pupils at Linwood who follow this curriculum present with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) / complex learning difficulties and disabilities (CLDD).

The Alma Curriculum is best described as a curriculum for pupils who are not ready for subject specific learning, but who benefit from a curriculum which encourages them to learn new concepts and skills and to establish these in a range of different contexts.

Progress is tracked and evidenced under the following eight learning domains:

  • Social relationships and emotional development
  • Communication
  • Conceptual development
  • Sensory responses
  • Understanding of time and place
  • Orientation, movement and mobility
  • Ownership of learning
  • Responses to routines and changes
