Hi David,
Thank you for your feedback in page 9 of the education inspection framework under the Quality of education, it says see below, students with SEND and the provider has the same academic, technical or vocational ambitions for all learners. My headteacher took this words literally and is now reluctant to allow me to do a different curriculum for those P levels students.
See paragraph :
26. Inspectors will make a judgement on the quality of education by evaluating the
extent to which:
Intent
 leaders take on or construct a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to
give all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged and those with special
educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) or high needs, the knowledge
and cultural capital they need to succeed in life
 the provider’s curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced towards
cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning and
employment
 the provider has the same academic, technical or vocational ambitions for
almost all learners. Where this is not practical – for example, for some
learners with high levels of SEND – its curriculum is designed to be
ambitious and to meet their needs
 learners study the full curriculum. Providers ensure this by teaching a full
range of subjects for as long as possible, ‘specialising’ only when necessary
