Post 16 Curriculum
Welcome to Post 16
At The Russett School, we have designed a balanced Post 16 curriculum framework based on clearly defined individual teaching programmes, appropriately targeted group work and carefully planned opportunities for our students to consolidate, and extend their skills to ensure that they leave us being as independent as possible. As our students become young adults and make the significant step from a Pre-16 to a Post-16 model of education our curriculum is designed to reflect this change. There is a shift in emphasis away from a more linear progression model based upon the teaching and generalisation of concepts, towards a model of education which recognises students existing skills and provides carefully structured ways of further enabling them to be applied in functional, everyday contexts.
Our Post 16 curriculum offers opportunities for our students to develop their learning, functional and personal skills in real-life settings in the academy, the workplace and college placements. The curriculum includes both accreditation and assessment routes that suit all learners’ abilities and runs alongside our Careers and Work Experience programme.
