Class Based Provision
Class Base consists of Year 7 and 8 pupils who are taught the majority of the time in our specialist area. We have two Classroom areas where we bring the curriculum to life by engaging in a variety of practical based learning activities where by students receive a personalised curriculum within a small setting . Literacy, Numeracy and social skills are key areas that underpin the Class Base curriculum giving pupils the opportunity to develop their confidence, knowledge and understanding to help them fulfil their potential when joining the main body of the school at the end of Year 8.
We also have our own outdoor learning area where we get to use our practical equipment for both unstructured and structured education. This outdoor space not only provides us with opportunities to learn from the outdoor environment but it also further develops our ethos towards a love of learning.
Citizenship is a statutory National Curriculum subject. We aim to help to provide pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding to prepare them to play a full and active part in society at local, national and international levels.
In particular, Citizenship aims to foster pupils’ keen awareness and understanding of democracy, government and how laws are made and upheld. This should help to equip pupils with the skills and knowledge to explore political and social issues critically, to weigh evidence, debate and make reasoned arguments. It also helps prepare pupils to take their place in society as responsible citizens, to help manage their money and make sound financial decisions.
