Welcome to Post 16 Class
Our shared school vision
To support all children and young people to hold their rightful place in society, equipped with the knowledge to shape their own futures, skills to lead an enriched and healthy life and voices to make a positive contribution in the world.
In Post 16 Class, we strive towards our shared vision by:
- Developing our skills across the four Preparation for Adulthood areas; Employability, Independent Living, Good Health and Wellbeing and Friends, Relationships and Community.
- Working towards personalised outcomes from Education Health and Care Plans.
- Working on improving our Functional Numeracy and Literary skills.
- Experiencing the World of Work through internal enterprise and meaningful work placements/experience in our local community.
- Developing positive relationships and broaden our access to community and leisure facilities.
- Promoting values to live an independent, health lifestyle through physical activity, healthy living, emotional wellbeing and resilience.
- Offering 'real world experiences' with appropriate levels of support.
- Encouraging the young people to make positive choices and understanding their right to have their voice heard, both in school and the wider community.
- Providing a supportive environment that our young people feel safe in, that will develop their confidence and given them an understanding of 'Life after Coppice'.
- Through robust transition, preparing our young people for leaving Coppice and embarking upon the next stage of their life, either in further education or within their community.
We believe in a broad and balanced ‘no limits’ curriculum that develops and nurtures life-long learning, builds interests, is meaningful and imaginative and promotes togetherness in the school and wider community. It is happy-centred; driven by confidence, positive relationships, support, coping skills and achievement and success.
In the Autumn term, we will strive towards developing the following skills:
- Employability skills through starting up an internal enterprise.
- Citizenship and developing an understanding of the environment.
- Community living skills through identifying likes and dislikes/hobbies and interests and where we can go in our local community.
- Independent living skills through identifying healthy foods and creating recipes/shopping lists.
- Teamwork skills through the Sports Leaders Award and physical activity/exercise.
- Planning and preparing healthy meals.
- Developing resilience through exploring emotions and mental health.
