Options

CURRICULUM INTENT

The Options lessons offered to our pupils in key stage 3 are designed to enrich their learning which we believe is essential for our young people of today.  The program aims to develop Personal Learning and Thinking Skills which help support success in learning, life and work.  PLTS cover:  A successful enrichment program will promote the life-skills needed for everyday life, develop “soft skills” that employers and universities look for, while also giving students the opportunity to find out more about their interests and passions.

The School also believes that the Options program supports pupils understanding of our Christians values of trust; inspiration; humility; care and the community; and perseverance.

Options provide the opportunity for pupil’s to experience practical activities that they would not necessarily be otherwise exposed to. For one lesson each week KS3 pupils undertake practical and varied activities, and then rotate each half term so that during the course of the year they have the opportunity to experience six different options.

At the end of each option pupils will complete a self-assessment of their learning and personal development, this will be used, along with teachers judgement, to map progress against the PLTs.
