The Shepwell School Curriculum 2018-2019

Children and young people will access suitable and flexible education appropriate for their needs. The service aims to maintain and progress the young person's learning by addressing their needs through a personalised approach, in liaison with the young person and their mainstream school. In the Centre we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum. From September 2018 we have included dedicated time on the timetable for pupils to access further CAMHS support, ASSIST (suicide prevention), Mental Heath First Aid, Friends Programme, SaLT, Year 11 stress therapy, and Pastoral Intervention.

The Home and Hospital Tuition Services will, where possible, provide an education appropriate to the needs of the child to allow the child to keep up with their studies. This is particularly important when a pupil is approaching public examinations. Children and young people supported by the H & HTS may study for a range of tests and examinations according to their educational needs and in co-operation with their own school e.g. controlled assessments, GCSE's etc. It is the statutory responsibility of the school at which the child or young person is on roll to ensure schemes of work are provided for the H & HTS and to make all external examination entries. Transfer arrangements may be made to allow the child or young person to take their examinations at the Shepwell School. 

Careers Guidance / Next Steps
The Shepwell School considers this to be an important part of the young person's educational planning, in liaison with school especially at KS4. We have access to an independent advisor who is available to offer advice and support to the young person. We also include careers as part of our British Values programme. The head teacher will assist with personal statements for university, and college applications. Across the service we encourage discussion about future aspirations to inform personalised education programmes.

Work Experience
In consultation with parents / carers, young people and their school we may be able to facilitate work experience. Examples of work experience that our pupils have undertaken include placements at the Education Development Centre, Pets R Us and The Beauty Salon.

Special Educational Needs
The Head Teacher and staff aim to ensure pupils with SEN have the greatest possible access to a personalised curriculum which best meets their needs. Partnership with parents and schools is seen as essential and the views of the young person are sought and valued.

Equal Opportunities
We are committed to providing equal opportunities and access to learning for all young people. We aim to provide a learning environment in which each person is respected and his / her contribution recognised and valued.

Anti Racism
We celebrate multicultural diversity. We are opposed to all forms of racist behaviour and seek to cultivate understanding of other cultures through our teaching.

Child Protection / Safeguarding Policy
The Shepwell School is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the welfare of the young people entrusted to its care at all times. The service fully supports and operates the Walsall policy and procedures on this matter.
