Chatten and the National Curriculum

Every child in the UK has a right to access the national curriculum including literacy and numeracy. 

Chatten pupils will work on a variety of skills or targets that are relevant to them as individuals.  You are unlikely to see ‘literacy’ or ‘numeracy’ specified as a discrete lesson on a pupil’s timetable due to the nature of our teaching and learning system.  However, these curriculum areas are built into the very fabric of the skills and lessons taught.
