Inclusion have a bespoke, adaptable and empowering curriculum

Our Curriculum

Inclusion Hampshire has developed a bespoke, adaptable and empowering curriculum for its learners based on 10 years of experience working with young people with mental health needs, ASC and behavioural trauma.

For the learners who attend Inclusion Hampshire, mainstream education has not been suitable, causing anxiety, school refusal and a breakdown in relationships. Our curriculum is designed to rebuild a positive educational experience. 

Following Covid-19, Barry Carpenter has developed the idea of a ‘Recovery Curriculum’ following the societal trauma following the pandemic. Inclusion Hampshire has long had its own recovery curriculum based on our experience of working with young people with mental health needs, historic trauma and negative educational experiences and it is a core tenet of our ethos.

At Inclusion Hampshire we want to be part of the movement that creates an equal society for everyone and our curriculum also reflects this value.

Each Key Stage


KS2 focuses on transitioning from KS2 to KS3, focusing on reading support and supporting those with other learning difficulties to move forward and enhance their knowledge. This complements our ‘diminishing differentials’ practice to ensure they can engage effectively with the KS3 curriculum.


The KS3 curriculum in English and Maths is designed to incorporate the skills and knowledge required to reintegrate into these subjects successfully at mainstream education in preparation for GCSEs. 

Our curriculum also includes Work Skills and Employability, focusing on identifying skills and attributes, personal strengths and career aspirations.

In Life & Wellbeing our curriculum focuses on positive mental health, healthy living, personal safety and emotional literacy.


Our KS4 curriculum comprises two facts: Functional Skills and GCSE.

Inclusion Hampshire is an accredited NOCN exam centre for Functional Skills English and Maths, Entry Level 1 – Level 2 (graphic).

Functional Skills

Our Functional Skills curriculum is the foundation for learning at KS4 and our GCSE curriculum provides an extension of this for those who want, and are able, to return to their referring school to sit GCSEs in Year 11.

Alongside this, our Work Skills and Employability curriculum includes transition planning to college/apprenticeships, career information, further developing transferable work skills and attributes and job search skills.

In Life & Wellbeing, we focus on Life Skills, positive mental health, developing resilience and RSE education.
