Key Stage 3 comprises of two parallel classes of years 7, 8 and 9 pupils and the pupils are grouped according to need and ability.
We strive to meet the individual needs of all our pupils through the delivery of a broad, balanced and vibrant curriculum that promotes their self-confidence and independence skills. The KS 3 teachers and support staff work together to plan a curriculum that meets the changing needs of our pupils as they develop.
The National curriculum is adapted and differentiated to meet the needs of our pupils, however some of our pupils have additional and complex needs and require a personalised curriculum to help them progress.
Pupils are assessed throughout the Key Stage and appropriate individual pupil targets are set. We have strong links with the local mainstream schools, which further enrich the educational opportunities available to our pupils and pupils in their respective schools, and dual placements can be arranged when suitable. There is a high ratio of adults to pupils within each class. Visits outside of school are used as a stimulus for theme-based learning and as a way of promoting social and emotional development as well as linguistic and cognitive development.
Our KS 3 teachers are Mrs Linguard and Mrs Green / Mrs Storey.
