The end of Key stage 2 is an especially significant point in a child’s education. It’s an opportunity to reflect on learning to date and priorities going forward. Although the vast majority of pupils will already have been placed on their most appropriate curriculum pathway, for a small number there may be pathway change at this time. There are two such pathways for Key Stage 3 and 4 provision:
- Those whose learning is a match to the pre or semi-formal curriculum models will have EHCPs indicating that their needs can be met in a setting that specialises in working with young people who have severe learning difficulties. Their learning abilities and needs will be a positive match to the curriculum at our Napier Miles site.
- Those who have been identified as being on the autism spectrum and whose learning is best matched to a more formal curriculum will move onto Key Stage 3 and 4 provision at our Brightstowe site. From here they will be able to engage in Entry Level and potentially GCSE accreditation pathways.
At the end of Key Stage 4 many pupils move on to life beyond school, most often onto next steps in their education. However, we do have a number of Key Stage 5 places at the Napier Miles site.
