About Key Stage 4
"Ready for my Future"
Our focus within KS4 is to ensure our young people are ‘Ready for the Future’. Using independence skills gained in KS3 they will be able, some with support, to make decisions to aid them in the future. Our young people will be building on strategies to support their own emotional and social well-being and using these skills to access work experience.
The curriculum is designed to allow the choice of specialist options to assist them in moving forward, better skills and knowledge in different areas of the curriculum, to ensure they are ‘Ready for the Future’. They will continue to build on these skills moving forward to 6th form or college.
Options - We are Introducing a Carousel This Year...
We have our ‘option’ afternoons on Wednesday and Thursday. We are introducing an option 'carousel' system this year, to give you a range of experiences and skills, accessing two different options every half-term (one on Wed and one on Thurs). They are: Cooking, Rural Studies, Art, Sewing, Computing, Childcare, and Design Technology.
Rewards and Behaviour
We continue to expect good behaviour in KS4. You will gain reward points for attendance, equipment, uniform and effort. Green cards are rewarded for something ‘above and beyond’ what is expected. Points will be deducted for negative behaviours and plenty of warning is given before we issue a Red card, this results in a lunch or after school detention.
Behaviour is rewarded – we organise a reward visit each term, for those with a certain amount of points and beyond, past trips have been Laser Quest, safari park, Picnic and Pizza in the park. We all have a lot of fun, so it is worth behaving for!
