Students in Ash class are mainly within Key Stage 4. There is however, a focus on functional skills, employability and independent living. Some students in either post 16 or Key Stage 3 who have been identified as needing this type of provision will also work within Ash, having inclusion as appropriate with their peers in the relevant key stages.
We hold inclusion as a high priority for students in Ash, whilst some will have inclusion with peers within school, others have inclusion within the mainstream school on the shared campus. This includes a range of subjects including English, Maths, Science, PE and Drama among others.
The students in Ash will study a range of subjects within their curriculum alongside developing functional skills in daily independent Living and Learning skills for work.
Students in KS3 & 4 assessed within all subjects on the P Levels or National Curriculum Levels. For students in Post 16, core subjects are assessed using Adult Steps.
Where students study vocational units, developing employability skills or/and Independent life skills, accreditation will be used to work towards recognised qualifications.
Students will be encouraged to take ownership of their learning, and develop their own portfolios of work.
