Key Stage 3 & Post 14
Key Stage 3
As students move in to the Post- 14 department they are offered more vocationally based opportunities. Links with local colleges are established, leisure opportunities are explored and practical life skills are developed. At the same time, basic literacy, numeracy and ICT skills continues to be taught.
We have identified nine broad learning themes which will form the basis of our curriculum and learning plans.
Mobility & Fitness
Daily Living and Independence
Creativity & Leisure
Citizenship and Work Related Learning
Cultural, Ethical and Spiritual Awareness
Our weekly timetables ensure that we cover each of these themes and dimensions through:
Key Skills sessions
Circle Time & School Council
PSHE – New Horizons and Sex Education Schemes of Work
ASDAN – Towards Independence
RE Schemes of Work and daily Acts of Collective Worship
Use of Community trips/Action for Kids/Work Related Learning & Business Enterprise programmes
A five year cycle of termly topics to give breadth and choice to learning particularly in regard to creativity, leisure and environmental awareness
Our curriculum is enriched by a wide range of opportunities to make educational visits to the local community and to places of interest in London and beyond. Students regularly participate in cultural and creative events both in school and off-site. Mapledown provides a range of sporting and well-being opportunities including the access to specialist teachers eg yoga, tai chi, karate
