The school’s curriculum is broad, balanced and includes, where appropriate, all of the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. There is a particular emphasis on core subjects and on personal skills so as to address significant gaps in previous learning.
Key stage 1/2
We have a primary approach to our KS1 and KS2 learning. There are specialist teachers who will work with the students focusing on different subject areas. The emphasis is on engagement and creativity. Assessment and tracking will relate back to the National Curriculum progression guidance.
Key stage 3
Learning takes account of the particular barriers and vulnerabilities of each learner. The balance between cross-curricular and subject-specific themes will depend on the engagement and interest of the learner, but assessment and tracking will in all classes relate back to National Curriculum progression.
Key stage 4
At Key Stage 4 students have the opportunity to follow a more flexible curriculum. Academic qualifications are offered via Entry Level, Functional Skills and GCSE examinations in a range of subjects. Vocational qualifications are also made available.
