Thrybergh Academy are proud to announce their new KS3 Inclusion Centre!
The centre provides a fully immersive, bespoke curriculum that caters for the needs of vulnerable pupils from Thrybergh Academy and our partnership schools.
If a child has special needs and vulnerabilities that are causing barriers to learning in a mainstream setting, they can be referred to the Inclusion Centre. The time that our children spend in the centre depends on their individual requirements and can range from a few weeks, to a full year if needed.
The curriculum in the centre is designed to ensure that students overcome their barriers to learning, by providing a bespoke package of support which includes life skills, social and emotional development and of course, the delivery of core and foundation subjects. By delivering the curriculum in a way that is accessible for our students, we hope to see an improved engagement in learning and therefore an improvement in academic progress.
In addition to the KS3 provision, we also now provide bespoke curriculums and timetables to a small number of KS4 students. This ensures that they are able to learn effectively and therefore feel fully prepared for their GCSE examinations. In addition to academic support, students have the opportunity to receive mentoring and support with their emotional well-being, which is vital in order to prepare them for life post-16.
The curriculum is currently delivered by our Inclusion Teacher, Mark Caseley and supported by Luke Fisher and Heather Angell, who are both Higher Level Teaching Assistansts. In addition to this, we have a team of specialist teachers who deliver a variety of important aspects of the curriculum.
[The Inclusion Centre] has been such a good thing. It has calmed our child down, helped with their personality and assisted with their education. Parent
