Curriculum Overview

The Marion Centre provides a thematic approach to the delivery of the curriculum to students, which covers the four core purposes of the new curriculum in being developed in Wales. These form the starting point for all decisions on the content and educational experiences to support our students to be

  • ambitious, capable learners ready to learn throughout their lives
  • enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work
  • ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world
  • healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society            

We strive for all our students to make excellent individual progress through creative learning opportunities, commensurate with their individual starting point. We encourage our students to develop their self-awareness, confidence and self-esteem as they mature into young adults. 

Teaching focuses on all areas of the National Curriculum, developing functional skills in literacy, numeracy, personal and social education (PSE), as well as digital competency.  We seek to support our students to become caring and confident members of our school, as well as the local and wider community. 

Experienced and dedicated staff provide creative learning opportunities as well as bespoke programmes of study ensuring we meet the complex needs of all our students.  We work alongside Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and other specialist professionals incorporating therapeutic approaches into everyday activities.  We pride ourselves in collaborative working, ensuring each student achieves their full potential.    

Some students access National Curriculum subject lessons when integrating into the mainstream body of the school. Integration may be beneficial for student academic or social progress, according to individual need.
