In Class Six there are currently eleven Year 11 students, who work in a range of situations including whole class, collaborative group and individual learning, and working both independently and with adults. Most students choose to sit with their peers at a table, but there is also the option to sit at an individual workstation. Students are supported by a Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist, part-time Educational Psychologist, Pupil Support Co-ordinator, Family Liaison Officer, Careers and Transition Officer and two full time teaching and learning assistants
Our day begins with meeting time when we use visual timetables to go through the day ahead, giving students opportunity to ask questions and share any concerns. Our day ends with a review, where daily successes are recognised and rewarded through praise and our house point system
Daily lessons in class follow the Key Stage 4 GCSE curriculum. Students, who have a particular aptitude for a subject, can also integrate lessons at Samuel Ward Academy. There is currently one student from Class Six who attends the academy for drama. Students’ social and emotional well-being skills are supported in class through weekly PSHE lessons and during meeting times. ICT is also taught weekly and students are working towards an ASDAN qualification in Life Skills.
Our class timetables can be found in the attachments section on this page.
We strive to meet the individual needs of students both within lessons and through intervention programmes that develop literacy and numeracy skills and address social, speech, language and physical needs.
