Enterprise is one of our 14-19 classes and is part of Pathway 2 within the Academy.
Enterprise are a vibrant group of students, who are engaged and inquisitive. They enjoy learning through hands-on experiences and applying new skills in the wider community. All learners within the class have a range of complex learning needs related to communication, interpersonal, and emotional needs; most of the class have a diagnosis of ASC or ADHD.
The teacher Rachel Kelly is supported by Eden Weaver, Jess Williams, and Anna Douglas who are all very experienced, welcoming, and highly skilled Teaching Assistants.
The students access most of the curriculum in their own classroom space which is a calming and stimulating environment that celebrates their achievements. Full advantage is also taken of the Academy facilities including the kitchen, hall, forest area, talking cabin, ICT suite, and sensory room. The students study English and Maths twice a week with daily reading and phonics sessions taking place across the Academy. They also learn about Science, History, and Geography through a cross-curricular approach.
Opportunities are also taken to explore the wider community and local area, through community visits in the minibus, Throughout the year children also have opportunities to engage in PE, employment skills, and drama experiences. The students explore their creative sides through art, cooking, music, and drama. Our students also engage in our Preparing for Adulthood curriculum which develops the skills, knowledge, and understanding needed to access/promote future employment, community skills, independence, and health.
We communicate with home daily through the use of planners, email, and telephone calls. We love to share the great work our students complete and celebrate their successes!
