Young people have the opportunity to develop to their full potential in preparation of their future life where there is a passion for learning and mutual respect for all.
The school's curriculum is broad and balanced, and includes, where appropriate, all of the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. There is a particular emphasis on core subjects and on personal skills, as to address significant gaps in previous learning.
We actively promote opportunities to broaden student's experiences through a wide variety of educational visits and we work with other agencies to deliver projects both on and off the school site. We encourage students to make a positive contribution to society in many ways, including involving them in community and charity events throughout the school year.
We also offer vocational placements to all students and they will have the opportunity to receive staff support as required, including college. In some cases, there may be the opportunity for students to begin working independently at placements. However, this must be risk assessed and pre-planned with the final decision made by the school.
Mind of my Own
Wisbech School also use Mind of My Own, an app allowing our young people to communicate with us through their phone or tablet giving them the confidence to express their thoughts wishes and feelings directly with us. For those that struggle with communication the 'Mind Of My Own' app offers them an alternative option and is a tool to assist with structuring their thoughts and feelings via preloaded scenarios.
Watch the video below where Headteacher Clare Gammons talks about the positive impact Mind Of My Own has had on young people and staff at Wisbech School.
