Key Stage 3
Learners are taught in mixed ability and mixed aged teaching groups of up to 8 within this key stage and teaching staff are reflective and plan accordingly for learners’ individual needs. Most lessons are 55 minutes long.
Learners accessing full time provision in a Key Stage 3 group receive a full and varied curriculum with the number of lessons allocated outlined below. However, the development of literacy, numeracy skills and social emotional and behaviour management are priority with KS3 groups to assist in re-integration back into a mainstream school.
Learners have access to appropriate E-safety sessions designed to meet the needs of our learners with topics being flexible to meet any issues or concerns which may arise during the time a learner is with us. Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is provided at levels appropriate to the age and maturity of the learner through PSHE lessons.
Wednesday, or Wellbeing Wednesday, is dedicated to specifically addressing the social and emotional needs of each learner as well as introducing them to new activities.
