All pupils follow core units of work that are differentiated to meet individual learning needs. Maths and English are prioritised in the first instance, but as each pupil’s hour’s increase, Science then History and Geography are introduced too, to provide a broad range of learning. The secondary curriculum is led by a teacher with 25 years of experience at senior level in a local secondary school.
Lessons are taught in a pupil’s home, in their local library or remotely, using Microsoft teams, depending on circumstances and what suits their needs best. We know that our pupils will arrive with a diverse range of skills and sometimes there will be gaps in their knowledge, exacerbated by absences from school. We are prepared for this and equipped to address the many issues this might throw up. Pupils are assessed on entry and lessons are differentiated accordingly, using attractive resources that meet individual learning needs. Our pupils make excellent progress and grow in confidence as a result, eager to return to school.
