Our curriculum is currently developing to meet the needs of both statutory requirements but also the needs of our different learners. After discussion with staff, parents and pupils we have developed a broad and balanced curriculum based on the differing needs of our young people.

At the Llwynhendy Site we offer a curriculum with greater emphasis on academic subjects for those pupils who feel more able to concentrate and remain focussed for the majority of each day.

At the Pwll Site we offer a curriculum with greater emphasis on practical and outdoor activities for those young people who find that they can focus for short periods in the day and require activities to enable them to remain on task throughout the day.

Both sites provide additional learning support and wellbeing support.

Wellbeing Intervention Centre

As a pilot project for 2015-16 academic year we are introducing and developing a Wellbeing Intervention Centre.  This is located on the Pwll Site.  This Centre will be used to address the needs of our young people who are finding the majority of the day simply too difficult to cope with. In the centre they will receive a high level of individual support to address wellbeing concerns and provide a quiet place with few distractions.

Our plan is to also to develop this centre to be used as a restorative approaches centre where pupils, who may have incurred a fixed term exclusion in the past, can work to resolve issues and conflict stopping them from being able to engage effectively in their learning.
