Assemblies take place on a fortnightly basis throughout most of the year.
Half Term 1:
- NCS – National Citizenship Service.
- Pedagogical Skills.
- STEP2 – sexual health and drop in sessions.
- Volunteering in the community opportunities.
The hometeam contributes to many areas of school life.
The rationale for the programme is to cover the following areas:
- Regular weekly analysis of rewards, sanctions and attendance with quality one to one conversations between the learning guide and their hometeam students.
- Regular weekly focus on progress through setting of targets and use of learning muscles.
- Following each DC, more in depth focus on progress, achievement and attainment.
- Development of SMSC – including British Values.
- PSHE topics appropriate to 17-18 year olds including drug awareness, alcohol awareness, coping away from home, sexual health.
- CEIAG – focussing on destinations and pathways – including university applications, student finance and employment routes.
Year 12 learners move into new home teams in the last half term of year 12. This allows initial discussions to begin and decisions made about destinations, ready for UCAS applications to begin in September, when the system opens. We also cover British Values at this time.
The process of applying to university is a detailed and time consuming one; this continues until Christmas (the deadline for UCAS is usually the 2nd week of January).
For the 3rd half term – January – February, we focus on PSHE topics before starting student finance which opens at the end of February. March is used to complete student finance applications, and accommodation applications for those learners moving away to university.
We then return to PSHE topics including preparing for university and keeping safe until Easter.
The final half term focuses on a mix of PSHE topics and achievement / study skills / preparing for final examinations in the run up to the final examinations and coursework deadlines. This includes revision techniques, independent learning skills, and time management to ensure that learners are best prepared for the last hurdles before they leave.
