3X is a Key Stage 3 Pathway 2 class. We have 11 students in this class, and we are based in room 7. There are 6 boys and 5 girls in the class. 3X are supported by two full time support staff.
We have a mixed range of abilities and our support staff help access differentiated work for those who need it.
They have a range of learning needs and all staff are very much aware of their individual needs. Positive support and behaviour plans are put in place to create a safe and pleasant learning environment for our students. Our reward system is an encouraging and positive tool for our students that helps them to engage with their work and improve behaviour. We benefit from having an additional workspace just outside the classroom where students can go should they require some time to self-regulate or co-regulate when needed. They also utilise this space to undertake any 1:1 or small group intervention work with the Intervention Tutor. We have clear rules displayed on the walls alongside the student’s EHCP targets. There is also a visual timetable which the students can utilise to support their day.
First thing in the morning we have tutor time where the students have different activities to do to help them get ready focussed and ready for learning. Activities include reading, world news, RSE and weekend work. During this time registration takes place. Students participate in an assembly on Friday mornings.
The students are taught for English and some PfA lessons by their tutor. They move to specialist rooms where they are taught by specialist subject teachers for Art, Science, Creative, Computing, E-Safety and P.E.
Communication between home and the Academy is crucial to support all our young people. Students’ planners are checked each morning and we encourage parents to correspond with us via the planner. You may also contact us via telephone or school email should the matter require urgent attention and we will ensure to respond to you as soon as possible.
We are very excited and look forward to a great year ahead.
