Key Stage 3 curriculum overview
Full time transition programs are run by a dedicated KS3 Nurture Team. This provision supports students unable to access mainstream education and typically lasts for up to two terms. Our aim is to prepare students for re-integration into mainstream school or, for those undergoing an EHCP assessment, a specialist placement. The maximum staff/student ratio is 1:6; up to 12 places are available.
The KS3 curriculum is delivered in the context of topics suggested by the students and is adapted as necessary to meet their individual learning needs. Development in non-academic areas, such as self-confidence, resilience or autonomy, is supported through regular off-site activities and visits.
All KS3 students follow core subjects but may also be offered other subjects depending on their interest and staff availability e.g. Modern Foreign Languages, Music and Drama.
