KS4 Curriculum

Students in Key Stage 4 will be progressing towards various qualifications including: GCSE English Language, English Literature, Mathematics and Science. They will also have the opportunity to study Functional Skills English and Maths Level 1 and options subjects including Vocational courses. The curriculum at Key Stage 4 is often highly individualized and is enriched with Life skills/PSHE, a variety or PE opportunities. All our learners have either Social, Emotional or Mental Health (SEMH) issues therefore supporting development of these areas is a priority in our setting. Emotional Literacy is taught through form time and within lessons. Subjects such as PE, Art and Cooking are delivered with the learning focus being SEMH and the learner’s individual behaviour targets. Baseline data of each learner is gathered at the point of referral. This data provides the benchmark from which academic progress can be measure. This information is analysed at teacher level and planning is individualised to 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.
