Form Teacher: Mr Newall
with Learning Mentor support from Mr Heath and Miss Robinson
Within school, this is a self contained area where intense teaching, support and intervention can take place, utilising an alternative curriculum.
Pupils work not only with Mr Newall, form teacher, but with other specialist Newfield teachers and support staff to help them get back on track and to help them succeed in their learning and their education.
Staff work with teaching assistants, and other teachers in school to plan and deliver lessons that help our pupils both academically and socially.
In order to help raise the achievement of pupils so that more of them make outstanding progress from their different starting points, to the time they leave school, we strive to ensure our curriculum is well-matched to pupils’ present and future employability needs by increasing the range of accredited courses available in school or with partners.
With this in mind and in addition to the accredited courses in school, we have developed work placements and alternative provision with a range of providers, enabling our students to not only build their skills but resilience also. We are very proud of how our pupils respond to their individualised learning programmes.
Pupils who are attending Alternative Provision lessons will also be put forward for the ASDAN Bronze/Silver awards and more recently the Duke of Edinburgh award, ASDAN offers a wide choice of activity-based programmes for learners working at a range of levels. More flexible than qualifications, our courses offer imaginative ways of developing, assessing and certificating young people’s knowledge and skills development. The programmes are suitable for the students of Newfield School, with accreditation available for 10 to 180 hours of activities. The Duke of Edinburgh is a new course for the 2018/19 term and is all about going the extra mile – gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new territories. At the same time, you’ll gather friendships, experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
