Further Education (FE) Department
The FE department contains two large purpose based classrooms. Students in the FE Department pursue an educational course designed to prepare them for life beyond school. Students gain a range of external accreditation and qualifications for their achievements.
The aim of our curriculum is to meet the individual needs of every student within the FE department. All our students have personalised targets. These targets ensure every student is working towards achieving the outcomes in their personalised Education Health and Care Plan. In the FE department personalised targets are developed through a curriculum that continues to build upon student’s prior learning in literacy, numeracy, ICT and focuses on preparing students for life beyond school. Students follow a relevant, age appropriate PSD course which comprises of nine units focusing on developing: citizenship skills; work related learning and independent living skills. Students also have opportunities to: complete voluntary work; achieve a Duke of Edinburgh Award; participate in residential school visits; carry out personalised work experience placements and attend local college courses. Students continue to maintain their physical, social and moral wellbeing through participation in weekly sport and leisure activities and RE modules.
Specialist teachers and dedicated support staff ensure high quality teaching and learning experiences for all students.
Students requiring additional support to meet their needs have personalised interventions, for example, sensory diet interventions. Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language and Physiotherapy programmes are delivered across the curriculum.
