Learners have tailored, personalised curriculums to meet their individual needs.
Baseline data of each learner is usually provided by mainstream schools at the point of referral. If this is not available each learner completes a series of baseline assessments once they start at our school. These assessments are analysed and an individual learning plan is put in place meeting the learners needs and narrowing any gaps in knowledge they may have. Interventions may be put in place if a learner is failing to make expected progress or a specific learning need is identified.
All full time learners have access to 25 hours of education. However for some learners, their needs may be best met by a flexible timetable for a period of time; this may be due to their emotional wellbeing; their ability to cope with full time provision (especially for those who have been out of education for some time); or due to challenging personal circumstances not connected with school.
When this is the case, this provision is reviewed regularly to ensure they can be increased to full time within a structured time limited plan. Each of these learners has a support plan for their next steps, clearly-defined timescales and systems to put planning into action. Secondary aged learners not accessing full time onsite provision are expected to access online learning activities.
The progress of all learners is monitored carefully and provision adjusted accordingly.
