The health and social care team operate a flexible open-door policy for additional support. The support for sixth form students can be working with staff at lunch times, during their private student sessions or equally where necessary the sixth former can be directed to attend intervention sessions by Mr Willars, Head of Vocational and Careers Education. For Year 10 and 11 students, because of the nature of their timetable, support is given at lunchtimes and alongside the school’s experienced intervention officers. In the sixth form students are invited to attend a range of educational visits at local care providers and universities. Students are also encouraged to use their private study time to complete work placements as these are key to develop understanding and to include as evidence in future applications for higher/further study and employment.

 

Please contact the Head of Department for this information.
