Welcome to our Sixth Form learning area
Helping your child to develop their confidence in learning at home is a really great way of supporting their learning skills when they come to school. We are keen that all our students continue to learn whilst they remain at home.
The focus of our learning in Sixth Form is centered around preparing for adulthood; we encourage our students to develop skills for independence at every opportunity. It is really helpful if you give further support for your child to develop these essential skills by encouraging them to participate in household activities and promoting self-help as often as possible.
As much of the accredited work we do in Sixth Form is evidenced using photographs, we would appreciate it you could take some photos of your child undertaking various activities, such as cooking or doing household chores. We are keen to see the work our students are producing and would be very pleased if you could share it with us by email. Alternatively, your child may build up a portfolio to share with us when we return to school.
We focus our learning in three stages; Experience, Explore or Investigate. Our discussions with you should enable you to confidently navigate through to the appropriate area to support their learning.
As your child learns and develops their knowledge, it is helpful if we can keep a track of their progress. This helps us to reflect on what they know, what they found easy to learn and what they might need a little more help with.
Please can you use the form to keep a record of their learning each day and email it back to their teacher. Please put their name in the subject line of the email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for supporting this and, as always, if you need anything further please email me at email@example.com
