Short Stay School caters for all of our permanently excluded Key Stage 3 (KS3) students. Our main aim is to support, through the work of our PRP Coordinator, our students back into mainstream school. We do this by identifying current barriers to learning and working together to overcome these. Where we are not able to successfully transition students back to a mainstream school, we prepare students to transition effectively to our KS4 provision, in order to give them the best possible chance of success in the future.
Our ethos is based around improving emotional literacy, resilience and self-esteem as well as cultivating a love of learning. If we are successful in this, we know that students’ behaviour will improve.
Our curriculum is designed to ensure all students make rapid progress in core areas, through project based work. All of our students are also given the opportunity to spend two days a week with our outstanding “Aweigh School” provision. Our curriculum runs in line with our ethos; ensuring that our students progress socially and emotionally as well as academically.
