We are delighted to announce our Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ December 2018

 

Sixth Form

At Bedelsford School we are always looking for creative, multi-professional approaches to delivery of the Curriculum that provides all learners with opportunities to develop independent living skills as well as build skills and knowledge and reach their full potential. Students continue to develop their Key Life skills while working towards Accreditation at the appropriate levels.

Accreditation offered at KS5

In KS5 we offer accreditations that build on our student’s success in KS4. We offer three distinct pathways in order to suit each individuals learning needs.

As of September 2018 KS5 have been delivering modules from ASDAN’s Personal Progress, Ascentis English and Maths, Ascentis Independent Living.

We believe these accreditations allow our students to gain a breadth of knowledge that will ensure they leave KS5 with the skills necessary to succeed in their adult lives.

Students in our Post-16 (Key Stage 5) Department also have Individual Learning Differentiations that set their learning goals that are reviewed throughout the term.

  • Key Skills are clearly identified and there are level descriptions to show student progression in attainment
  • National Accreditation celebrates annual achievement and provides evidence for Entry 1-3 qualifications

We have a new 14-19 Curriculum Provision in place for September 2018 where we have mapped progress in KS4 through ASDAN Modules followed by Ascentis qualifications and accreditations at the appropriate level for each student by the end of KS5

Also, in partnership with Dysart School, St Philips Schools, Kingston College  and through links with Nescot College, we will be providing our sixth formers with career opportunities. Through links with the Royal Horticultural Society we will be offering our Sixth Formers opportunities to participate in school gardening courses that will lead to progression through the School Gardening Awards, Levels 1 to 5.

On parent and carers’ request we will be offering accreditation through the Duke of Edinburgh Schemes where students will have an opportunity to develop such skills as planning for class trips, participation in outdoor activities and raising money for charity. Our students will have an opportunity to participate in such sports as ice skating, bowling, swimming (Spectrum Sports Centre) as well as have opportunities for water sports (Richmond Rowing Club) and have a go at rock climbing activities (White Spider).

The school is truly ‘outstanding’ indeed and we don’t mean just in the sense of how Ofsted have classified it.
