Rawmarsh Aspire caters for Primary and Key Stage 3 students.
Our Primary model follows a modified National Curriculum, through thematic cross-curricular projects and explicit numeracy and literacy lessons. Our Primary phase is organized into three distinct groups; Nurture, Lower Primary and Upper Primary with students allocated according to age as well as stage of development.
Each group receives one numeracy and literacy lesson every day. They are taught PE and the thematic projects cover Science, Art, Design, Technology and Humanities (History & Geography).
Key Stage 3
Our Key Stage 3 groups also follow a modified National Curriculum. They receive one mathematics and English lesson every day. Students also follow programmes of study in Science, Humanities, Art, Design, Technology, ICT, PE and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE).
Additionally, all students have access to an enrichment programme designed to build cultural capital amongst students and address some of the outcomes of the Preparing For Adulthood (P4A) programme.
Finally throughout their time with Aspire students will be connected to a dedicated Learning Mentor when needed, they will work closely with students and home, to help remove any barriers to their education.
