Intent

To provide a personalised education offer that enjoys the benefits of mainstream provision whilst supported by highly trained specialist staff. No child should be limited by the constraints of a setting, at the Horizon Hub pupils enjoy the best of both worlds; mainstream and special.

Implementation

Through the close working relationship with our Partner School Horizon Community College and the expertise and experience of staff here at Abbey School we have developed a curriculum based upon extensive research that allows pupils the freedom to explore their skills and abilities in mainstream but come back into the Hub to keep their core skills in numeracy and literacy moving forwards at their own pace.
Abbey School who worked closely with the Doncaster Research School to develop a curriculum offer that is highly personalised and is based upon a range of challenges each day that pupils can independently choose when and how to complete. Staff work closely alongside pupils acting as a support and facilitator ensuring that every pupil is stretched and challenged.
