Educational Visits / Alternative Provisions
Educational visits have restarted after COVID 19 restrictions.
Educational visits form a vital part of our curriculum. We have previously visited places such as; Yorkshire Wildlife Park, STEM at Magna, National Coal Mining Museum.
Pupils have access to a range of alternative provisions including Reverse the Cycle, Construction, Riding for the Disabled and Keats Engineering and Education.
Reverse the Cycle is a project which involves bicycle maintenance. Not only does it support our pupils to develop new skills which they may utilise outside of school, but also exposes them to learning in an employment style environment with other adults and pupils from different schools and communities.
Our onsite construction tutor also delivers lessons to individuals and small groups on a variety of practical skills including: carpentry, plastering and tiling. This is another opportunity for pupils to operate in an employment style environment and interact with adults in the community.
Riding for the Disabled is an established charity who have supported young people for over 50 years to develop skills in relation to horse riding and maintenance. This provides another valuable opportunity for the development of social and emotional skills.
Keats Engineering and Education offer separate opportunities to develop knowledge in skills in both Engineering and Sports Coaching. A blend of practical and theoretical lessons give our pupils the opportunity to experience an environment which may be a future career.
All external provider visits are supported by school staff and transport is provided.
