Subject delivery in the Tate Gallery is to be delivered by a fully thematic approach for specified subjects (Humanities, Science, Art and Design and Technology). The skeleton schemes of work are written collaboratively by the Tate Gallery team and then resourced and planned by specific teachers. The schemes of work are then fused together logically to immerse the student into the theme to ensure deeper learning links are established.
Communication, PSHE, RE and Independence will run alongside Thematic Approaches to Learning (TAL) where links will be made as appropriate. On some occasions these subjects will be offered as a discrete subject to deliver key areas of development for individual cohorts and offer enrichment opportunities such as Woodland Skills and Community Music projects.
