Key Stage 4 Accreditation
Pupils in Key stage 4 are provided the opportunity to experience a broad, personalised, and vocational curriculum offer.
Pupils develop core skills in English and Maths through a functional approach to teaching and learning alongside working towards progress in their EHC plans across their other core curriculum subjects which are Wider World, HRE and Life Skills.
In addition to this pupils make 3 options and these cover a broad range of curriculum areas including horticulture, sport and leisure, media, humanities, catering, outdoor learning, and D of E, photography and performing arts.
There are further bespoke options for pupils including the use of City of Portsmouth college courses and bespoke work experience packages. All pupils will gain accreditations for these options and core offer, awarded between Pre-Entry Level 1, Entry Level and Functional Skills Level 1 & 2.
All Key Stage 4 pupils are entered for English and Maths accreditation according to their academic level. This includes Entry Level & Functional Skills.
Please note: Our highly personalised and be-spoke curriculum continues to see adaptions to the curriculum offer to match the pupils complex and ranging needs.
