Introduction to the framework
The Curriculum Framework for Children and Young People with Vision Impairment (CFVI) has been developed to support children and young people with vision impairment to access an appropriate and equitable education. The framework presents outcomes within 11 teaching areas. It provides a vocabulary to be used by children and young people, their families and professionals in the UK who work with them.
At NCW, learning and success amongst our students is underpinned by the Curriculum Framework for Children and Young People with Vision Impairment.
