Work Skills & Careers

Our intent for pupils accessing the semi-formal curriculum is to be working towards an adulthood of contribution and fulfilment of potential. Pupils focus on experiencing different types of work and visiting different work places.

 

Relationships & Sex Education

Through class based shared experiences, pupils develop tolerance of being part of a group and work towards becoming contributing members of the group.

Relationship skills are taught specifically using specialist strategies above and integrally through a range of interactions with adults and peers.

Pupils learn about their bodies and the vocabulary of emotions in order to enable their ability to self-regulate.
