Fireflies curriculum is very varied and tailored to the needs of our class family. Our class is predominantly for pupils with ASD, although not exclusive to this need. We focus on developing independence, academic and social skills using strong boundaries. We use many of our curriculum pathways to provide an individual learning path for each child at their own pace.
