Welcome to our 6th Form section of the Heatherwood website.
The first term is an important time for our pupils as they begin to transition back into school. The majority of our young people will have been out of school since March 2020 and may have also been restricted to their own homes. With this in mind, we would like to enable our learners to have a safe return to school whist supporting their mental health and wellbeing.
Recent events have seen Barry Carpenter, a leading expert in Sensory Education, create a Recovery Curriculum
We all agree a huge focus needs to be on the pupils’ mental health and wellbeing and therefore we have adopted this to allow us to support for our learner’s needs and meet them where they are before providing them with their next steps. Here is an outline of the general topic that we will be looking at this term.
