Year 9

Our year 9 provision aims to provide a rich and varied curriculum for our pupils to engage with.

In Year 9, we offer respite placements for 6, 12 and 18 weeks which focus on specific placement objectives.

Through our teaching, we hope to re-engage pupils with a love of learning; providing high academic challenge and a safe and supporting environment. The provision benefits from small class sizes, enabling intense input from the staff and provides a safe and structured environment in which pupils are given opportunities to develop academically as well as emotionally and socially.


On entry, pupils will have the following baseline assessments:

Re-tests will take place periodically throughout the respite placement and at the end of placement.

Each subject will assess academic progress against the specific subject content covered during the respite placement. Each subject will assess progress made against individual growth targets set based on the Boxall assessment and the reason for referral. Formative assessment will take place each lesson.
