Learning Pathways

The send inspires learning pathways present a carefully graded series of small step goals. The pathways cover the subjects expected within a typcial early-years curriculum, complemented by a rich set of co-curricular activites to help develop sense-related skills and dexterity.

Core subjects

  • English covering reading, writing, expressive language and recpetive language.
  • Mathematics divided into number, measure, shape position, direction and statistics.
  • Science including living things, materials, forces, earth and scientific skills.Timelines of evidence to show progress on each goal.
  • Social & Emotional focussed on play, confidence lifestyle and relationships.

Co-curricular activities

  • Visual skills aimed at helping pupils with a visual impairment or visual perception difficulties.
  • Listening skills targetted at pupils with a hearing impairment or poor listening-concentration.
  • Exploration through touch for pupils with visual/aural impariment
  • Dexterity&Hand skills addressing motor disability, poor hand skills/strength


We believe every child should aim to reach the top of his/her tree, but if it proves to be more challenging to get above the lower branches, then there should be lots of opportunities to flourish and grow in areas of special significance to each of them.


The pathways can be purchased independently from the SEND Inspire software license, please contact us for more details if interested.
