Meadway 1 & 2
The Meadway 1 site is currently being used as to support the delivery of KS3 Behaviour and Intervention programmes for young people who have been permanently excluded from school. Respite programmes are also delivered at Meadway 1 to students who are at risk of permanent exclusion from mainstream school. Schools commission programmes to support the young people in identifying the challenges within their behaviour and learning strategies to address these to allow for a successful return to mainstream school.
The primary aim for Meadway 1 provision is to ensure that students are reintegrated into mainstream schools or otherwise appropriately placed. We offer personalised pathways for all our students to ensure equality of opportunity. We provide a curriculum which allows students to progress academically as well as socially and emotionally.
All students at Key Stage 3 complete baseline assessments across all curriculum areas in order for us to accurately record and track progress across the curriculum.
Meadway 2 is the new site for young people who have been out of mainstream school for some time as a result of medical or mental health challenges. We offer a stepping stone that helps young people to reintegrate into their schools or support them to make the transition into a new setting.
Our aim is to support young people who may have disengaged from education to re-discover their interest in learning. We do this by tailoring each individual’s timetable to suit their needs and interests and offering 1:1 and small group support and mentoring where necessary to build confidence and social skills.
Our base at Meadway 2 is small and student centred. Young people are given support to help them manage their anxieties and prepare for a return to full time education, employment or training.
We strip back the curriculum to focus mainly on the core subjects of English, Maths and Science and additionally offer Art, ICT, PE, PHSE, RE and Drama.
Our school environment is a nurturing one. Our students are sensitive to each other’s needs and support each other to re-engage positively in their education. As socially and emotionally.
All students complete baseline assessments across core curriculum areas as they arrive, in order for us to accurately record and track progress across the curriculum.
Meals for all students in Meadway 1 & Meadway 2 are provided in the Meadway main building.
