Independent Learning

The independent learning opportunities that we set within the child development and health and social care curriculum is to support our students further to develop our students beyond the school with specialist knowledge to equip them with the life skills that they will need to ensure to access to future opportunities.

Through a ‘Read, Watch, View’ approach we encourage our students to explore different contexts through use of real life examples and exposure key aspects that impact this dynamic environment within a childcare and health and social care settings setting through problem solving scenarios, which will help students to develop personal qualities such as aspiration, teamwork & resilience.

KS4 classes are set additional independent learning opportunities and guidance to support the ongoing development of their exam content. This is generally done through using past papers with a variety of different revision topics and completing independent research that will support with their coursework tasks. Past exam papers are set on Satchel for students to access at home.

KS5 classes are also set exam style questions that support with the core knowledge from lessons. In addition they are set research tasks and reading that consolidates prior knowledge. They will also be set regular research tasks that ensures students are keeping up to date with key changes that happen within a health and social care setting, as this will support with independent coursework tasks

Students can access Satchel one for more guidance on independent learning in their child development and health and Social care course.
