Key Stage 3 & 4 (11-16 years)
In addition to using Pace’s integrated approach, children in our Secondary provision also benefit from a highly personalised functional and life skills based curriculum to help prepare them for their future lives as young adults in the community. Within their weekly timetable there are opportunities to develop and apply their problem solving and academic skills, for example through purposeful trips to the supermarket followed by cooking activities, which have been carefully planned to work on particular gross/fine motor and mathematical skills.
Our Secondary provision specifically has a stronger focus on preparation for future adult life and building up highly personalised functional daily living skills to facilitate future independence and success.
The Secondary integrated curriculum also includes the ASDAN (Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network) ‘New Horizons’ programme, which is a PSHE (Personal Social and Health Education) and citizenship learning programme designed for young people with special educational needs. It offers a nationally accredited way to record and celebrate skills and achievement in these curriculum areas.
Our Secondary provision also incorporates a strong age appropriate focus on PSHE (personal, social and health education) and SRE (Sex and relationships education) including e-safety and impartial careers advice.
The Secondary groups are based at The Pace Centre, Coventon Road, Aylesbury, HP19 9JL and The Bradbury Campus, 156 Wendover Road, Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire, HP22 5TE
