Everything we do at Springwell Harrogate is underpinned by our desire to ensure the most appropriate next steps for young people.
We assess the needs of our young people and in collaboration with host schools plan their intended curriculum and thus the way they access their destinations.
The practical steps we take to ensure this are outlined below:
As a school we are determined to:
To do this we::
|Equip every young person who joins our school with the skills necessary to allow them to access their academic next steps.||Have a curriculum which focuses on establishing and developing the key skills required to access an individual’s next steps|
|Build and consolidate reading skills to enable access to an academic curriculum|
|Build and consolidate numeracy skills to enable access to an academic curriculum|
|Build and consolidate emotional communication skills and social skills needed to access their future destinations|
|Be ambitious for our learners to get them to their appropriate next step destinations.||Support host schools with EHCAR applications, so young people are able to access an appropriate provision|
|Work collaboratively with schools to identify a student’s needs, and support them with ensuring smart targets and interventions are set once placements end|
|Work with the local authority FAP/NYAP to place students in mainstream schools after they have been unsuccessful in their original school|
|Improve the social and emotional skills of our young people through the development of strong safe, trusting relationships||Plan challenging activities which put our learners outside their comfort zones in our experiential learning programme|
|Use our cooking programme to enable learners to work together and develop a repertoire of dishes they can use at home|
|Run nurture sessions at breakfast time and during breaks where our young people support one another and take part in activities which develop robust relationships|
