Leaving Transition


Aim...

The aim of all aspects of our Post 16 curriculum is to prepare students for adult life, by developing the skills, knowledge and understanding which they need in order to choose set and achieve their personal goals and to live their lives to their full potential.

 

These goals may include academic aspirations, vocational or career plans, hopes for independent living, choices of all underpinned by the ability to form strong social and personal relationships.

 

To summarise the aims of the Post 16 provision are to:

  • Meet a student’s Speech, Language and Communication Needs
  • Increase a student’s independence and life skills
  • Increase a student’s personal and social skills
  • Promote transition to local college or social care provision
  • Promote self empowerment so students learn to make reasoned, positive life choices
We strive to achieve these aims by addressing the individual needs of every student through the delivery of their Personal Learning Intentions (PLI’s), and a curriculum which focuses on Communication Skills, Cognition skills, Physical and Sensory skills as well as Social and Emotional skills. These areas are focused on via an enriched curriculum including:
  • Horticulture
  • Outdoor Education
  • Functional Life Skills at the Annexe.
  • Small animal care
  • Hair and Beauty
  • Art
  • Cooking
  • Drama
  • Workshop
  • Functional Maths and English qualifications.
Where appropriate, we link students’ learning to Unit Award Scheme (AQA),which is an accredited scheme of learning delivered at a challenging level to our young people.

Transition....

All young people in Year 11 and Year 14 are prepared for transition to their next stage of education or care. Parents are given formal information about local services and provision at their child’s Annual Review as well as access to a Careers and Next Steps Day which is in November of each year. This year we had over 20 providers from Lincoln and the surrounding area. Parents feel this is a really important event, which can inform them of services and provision available to their young person.
Once transition steps have been decided, school facilitates the young person to access the future provider to help with the familiarisation process to ensure their transition to another provision is as smooth as possible and outcomes are positive.
