KS2 & KS3 Curriculum

The Curriculum

 

All learners follow an intensive three year curriculum to provide the skills and knowledge to overcome previous barriers to learning. The three years are split into six
themes;

• Heathy Lifestyles
• Ourselves, growing and changing
• Families and relationships
• Shared responsibilities
• The wider Community
• Economic well being

On completion of the six themes, learners are then supported to develop personalised learning pathways incorporating longer term projects, using the skills and knowledge they have developed over the first three years. We are currently designing a key stage 4 curriculum subject to Ofsted approval.

Our innovative experiential curriculum is designed to meet their social emotional and mental health needs, develop coping skills and change behaviour. This is in addition to achieving academic outcomes for all key areas of education including, English, Mathematics, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), Enterprise, Citizenship, PHSE (Personal Health and Social Education) Physical Education and Humanities.

Having extended our school age to 16 TOS will now be able to deliver KS4 to all our learners.  During Year 9 learners across the sites will have a gradual transition getting to know one another and beginning to step into Phase 3 of our curriculum.  Vocational and academic courses will be available depending on the young people’s interests and learning styles.  There will be a core offering of ASDAN awards, Functional Skills and Duke of Edinburgh Bronze with more bespoke elements also on offer.  SEMH will still be at the core of all we do and learners will follow a life skills and careers programme which will include work experience and residentials.  Throughout we will be supporting and inspiring our young people to be lifelong learners ready for their next steps in life, whether that be college, employment or apprenticeships.
