Curriculum Information​​​​​​​

Success through positive learning experiences 

TMBSS aims to provide a curriculum which is highly responsive to the needs of the individual. Our key aim is to ensure that this is both high quality and effective for equipping the young person for their next stage.

Pupils’ programmes follow the most recent National Curriculum requirements and close links are maintained with mainstream schools, to support reintegration into mainstream education / training.

All pupils have the entitlement to access a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that is matched to their needs and abilities. A range of alternative provision activities are available to re engage, motivate and develop pupils’ skills.

Activities planned with the aim of promoting the intellectual, social, moral, spiritual, cultural and physical development of pupils.

Every pupil is able to fully access the curriculum irrespective of gender, ethnicity, belief, social or cultural background, academic ability, specialised need, learning difficulty or disability.​


Encourage an enjoyment of learning by​ focusing on success and what the pupils do well. Raising core skills of literacy and numeracy to allow the pupils to access learning more readily.
