The GWH Centre teachers teach
pupils from Early Years to Key Stage 4 (Reception Class to Year 11). Teaching
takes place either at home or in the local community e.g. a local library.
Pupils are taught 1:1
What do we teach?
The GWH Centre teachers
deliver a learning programme which is planned with the pupil’s home school. An
initial focus is on engagement. The key academic focus is on English, Maths and
Science. The home school informs the GWH
Centre teachers of the appropriate curriculum and provides resources. If this
is not possible, teaching is informed by the National Curriculum
framework. The pupils benefit from
continuity in learning. If a pupil is unable to participate in a lesson,
subject lessons can, and do, resume from where they left off. Subject content
is tailored to pupils’ circumstances. Our teaching has to be flexible and
adaptable at all times. For instance,
pupils have often missed the opportunity to develop key skills, because ill
health has resulted in low attendance at their home school. At other times we
teach an accelerated programme of coursework and Controlled assessments, in order
to meet exam deadlines.
