Education and Therapeutic Care for Young People
At Lewis Charlton the focus is on empowering students to realise their personal and social potential by presenting curricular opportunities and community responsibilities in a manner that enables individuals to understand that their experiences are relevant, their feelings validated and their contribution meaningful.
By personalising the learning experience it is expected the students come to invest in progress and take ownership of process. Educational performance is measured at Key Stage 3 & 4 by external accreditation e.g. A.Q.A Unit Awards, Entry Level, BTEC and G.C.S.E examinations. Teaching staff comprise of subject specialists for each area of the National Curriculum. The curriculum has been developed with the aim of addressing the emotional, social and vocational needs of our students.
Inclusion, as an aim for our students, translates as a commitment to National Curriculum standards and practices and an awareness of opportunities for sharing and/or integrating into mainstream education and vocational experiences.
