Approach

School’s Curriculum Approach:

The school is divided into four phases.  The Lower School (Years 3 – 7), the Middle School (Years 8 – 9), the Upper School (Years 10-11) and the Sixth Form (Years 12- 13).  Within each Phase we have three Curriculum Pathways:

1)    Skills for Life

2)    Skills for Work

3)    Skills for Further Education

All students follow a programme of study based on the National Curriculum, but adapted to suit their individual needs and to help meet the outcomes of their Education, Health and Care Plan.

Students on the Skills for Life Pathway focus on increasing their independence throughout their time at Carew Academy, with lessons focusing on literacy, numeracy, personal care, travel training, personal safety and independent living.

Students on the Skills for Work Pathway focus on obtaining the skills they need to be successful in securing either paid or voluntary work in the future, with a focus on literacy, numeracy and work skills including personal safety and relationships education.

Students on the Skills for Further Education Pathway focus on achieving accreditation outcomes which will provide them access to courses in Further Education Colleges when they leave Carew.  This includes preparing for GCSE and Functional Skills exams.

Placement on a particular pathway is not fixed and students may change pathway as they move through the school based on their progress in discussion with parents/carers.

Further details for each Phase of the school are provided on the relevant page.

Further Information:

We welcome the opportunity to discuss the school’s curriculum further with parents/carers.  Parents should contact the School Office (0208 647 8349) in the first instance if they require further information. The office will direct each enquiry to the appropriate Pathway lead.

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
