The role of education is essential in risk
reduction and pro-social development
The role of education is essential in risk reduction and pro-social development and embraces a wide range of academic, vocational, recreational and therapeutic activities. The central focus is the young person. Surrounded by caring and dedicated staff, the nurturing and supportive learning environment provides young people with the perfect setting for them to achieve their potential. Our aim is to prepare young people for the next stage of their development and equip them with the skills and qualities to make a positive contribution to society.
Amberleigh is committed to the education of every young person with every pupil receiving the support and challenges required to fulfil their potential. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which provides continuity and progression, taking individual differences into account. Our school curriculum is based firmly within the National Curriculum but modified appropriately to meet the specific educational and personal developmental needs of each pupil. Small class sizes and individually focused teaching nurtures the learning of each young person. The development of pupils’ literacy and numeracy skills is a priority, which is underpinned by intensive individual support as well as being embedded in vocational subjects.
A personalised curriculum allows pupils to apply knowledge and skills learnt in school to everyday life. Lessons are firmly rooted in a therapeutic approach and delivered in a creative and flexible way. All young people have the opportunity to study and gain accreditation for a range of subjects at GCSE, BTEC, Functional Skills Level 1 & 2, Entry Level Awards, Certificates and Diplomas.
Subjects delivered include:-
- English/ Literacy
- Social Communication
- Computer Studies
- Media Studies
- Food Technology
- Creative Studies combining, Art & Design, Music & Performing Arts
- Various Personalised Intervention
