Dream Believe Achieve

Mayfield College 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Mayfield College!


At Mayfield College we recognise that students are approaching a pinnacle milestone as they are in the final stages of preparation for adulthood. As a staff team, we identified that the priority for our students is to ensure that our all of students are ready for ‘Life beyond Mayfield’. With this in mind our curriculum intent is to ensure that students have truly generalised their current skills to apply them in a functional and meaningful life, and where appropriate to develop new skills, communication and knowledge to secure a successful transition into adulthood. This will promote students to become as independent as possible and to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

The key Mayfield principles become paramount for students for successful transitions, these principles being:


· To be able to communicate and be understood

· To maximise independence

· To understand rules and the need to follow them

· To be able to make choices/decisions

· To develop resilience

· To have social skills and apply them and be part of society

· To be able to help themselves or have some control over what is happening to them

· To be able to learn to self- regulate to cope with challenge in an appropriate way

· To know their sense of worth and have self-confidence

· To use their bodies to complete fine and gross motor tasks and activities.

· To understand the world around them Click here for further details of our transition programme



Mayfield College aims to provide students with a balanced curriculum consisting of ‘core’ subjects and ‘options’. All of our students have personalised targets as part of their EHCP which underpin their learning within College.

The curriculum has been devised to promote the students’:


· Functional Literacy and Numeracy Skills.

· Life and Living Skills

· Social and Emotional Skills

· Communication Skills

· Personal Interests and Aspirations

· Career Guidance and Work Skills

· Travel Skills

· Creative Skills

· Leisure Skills

· Healthy Living


Any students requiring additional support have personalised interventions for example sensory diets, Speech and Language Therapy programmes, Counselling programmes, MOVE programmes.


Programmes of Study

The college curriculum is made up of 5 main programmes of study which facilitate breadth and coverage leading to functional skills development. The programmes are guided by reduced levels of support which ultimately lead to independence. These study areas can be evidenced through ASDAN Life skills Challenges, Mayfield assessments and college tracking documents.
