Curriculums are individually developed around the child or young person in order for them to achieve success and gain the skills and qualifications needed for them to move on to the next phase of their life.
- 100% of children and young people at our school have access to community activities which reflect their personal interest.
- All of the children and young people are learning independence skills to support them to move on.
- All of the children and young people have the opportunity to obtain college placements with local colleges such as West Notts College.
The pathway at Wings School Notts is strengthened because of our additional residential provision for those with more complex mental health issues which is supported by an experienced clinical team. Children and young people can access the residential pathway at any stage and education is available to all.
Careers – Thinking about the future?
We will support your child/young person towards the best possible future pathway. We will work closely with you on your child`s hopes, dreams and aspirations.
Careers is now part of our core curriculum offer and it is taught throughout the school from Years 7 -11.
Throughout Key Stage 3 pupils are drawn towards careers, staff make contextual links to give pupils insight into which careers are available linked to the subject. We keep careers in mind throughout curriculum planning and promotion of gaining key skills for working life remains a focus.
Throughout Key Stage 4 we maintain the focus on careers but increase exposure by providing discreet lessons as well as work experience opportunities. The children and young people have the opportunity to further explore all the options open to them e.g. College or employment with training and apprenticeships. During Year 10 and 11 there are also regular meetings with our Careers Advisor for further bespoke careers advice and guidance.
At Wings School Notts we recognise the benefits of volunteering and look at opportunities to give young people this experience, to not only enhance a CV or gain valuable work experience but also to be a positive member of the community and pass on their kindness and enthusiasm.
We have an annual careers fair involving a variety of employers such as the armed services, fire service and paramedics. We have excellent links with these services, and they regularly come into the school to run fun filled activity days advising on opportunities and careers.
At Wings School Notts we offer a broad and balanced curriculum which enables our students to gain relevant and appropriate accreditation in an array of subjects. We offer GCSE’s and Functional Skills in core subjects as well as offering Entry Levels and BTEC in other subjects. We also have an ASDAN programme centred on life skills and provide opportunity for pupils to take part in Duke of Edinburgh.
