Summer term 2022
In Red Class, we aim to create a curriculum for each student that supports their longer-term educational and vocational aspirations and gives them daily opportunities to make progress on their personal goals in the context of studying and classroom participation. All students undertake a personal pathways programme and also develop their English and Maths skills.
The curriculum also includes structured sessions relating to personal development, incorporating aspects of RSE, PHSE and preparation for adulthood. Staff make these areas relevant to the ages of the students and to their current situation of rehabilitation following life-changing illness or injury. Personal Development is also incorporated into all aspects of classroom-based learning as students are supported to reflect and learn from challenges as they arise.
This term our themes will be World Issues and Reflection and Growth. Linking to World Issues, students will be encouraged to explore national and international news stories of interest and we will turn the spotlight on food production and democratic processes. Linking to Reflection and Growth, a Buddhist festival is an opportune moment to reflect and exchange ideas. Students will reflect on their personal development and growth as part of their progress and life at this time. Students will develop communication, reading, writing, creative and practical skills in the context of these themes and our personal development curriculum. .
