Key Stage 3
At the Assessment and Reintegration Centre, students follow a differentiated programme that enables them to enhance their literary skills and build confidence, enjoyment and progress in the subject before reintegration into mainstream education. A comprehensive induction pinpoints strengths and areas for improvement which inform the IEP. Students are given targets from baseline assessment. Within twelve weeks most of the students return to mainstream school having made good or outstanding progress. Each pupil is reassessed every six weeks and progress tracked and monitored rigorously.
The Key Stage 3 curriculum covers Modern and Pre-19th Century literature, Shakespeare extracts and stories and poems from around the world. We also encourage and enable our learners to read widely for enjoyment, providing up to date and engaging reading materials for all. Students learn how to draft and edit their work, with close attention to SPAG. They are actively encouraged to participate in a range of Speaking and Listening activities and can achieve the Prince’s Trust Presentational Skills Award in Year 9.
