At Ruby Lodge we run a full daily timetable, covering all aspects of the national curriculum. As all our students are here for only a short stay, and have very differing educational capabilities and needs, we run a topic based curriculum cycle, with 12 topics running for a week each. We occasionally add a topic based on current events, such as a topic on Brazil during the Olympics.
Within each topic we try to incorporate an educational visit, if possible, and lots of practical hands on tasks, such as baking, art and sensory play. We set an individualised timetable for each child, incorporating any particular likes and dislikes, and try to foster an enthusiasm to engage in school.
