Preparation for Adulthood
Vision and Intent
Here at Kelford, we want to enable all our students to have the fullest and broadest experiences as they progress into adult life. Through a robust curriculum we endeavour to raise aspirations, build self –belief and equip our young people to make choices about their future.
The curriculum is built around the PFA outcomes-Employment, Independent Living, Health and Community Inclusion, each young person’s experience of this journey will be different and personalised to suit their needs. Celebrating individuality, personal achievements and strengths will be a main focus as well as identifying new goals and targets around each outcome.
Students will have access to relevant information; build appropriate skills and experience meaningful encounters with external support systems, employers, training providers and community facilities. They will take part in simulated activities, virtual experiences and work placements. All students will benefit from bespoke careers education to suit their needs and be in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks.
Independence will be a focus for learners from early years to primary and continuing in secondary forming a strong foundation for students progressing into adulthood. Focusing on this throughout a pupil’s school career, will allow students to master skills and demonstrate competency in various settings.
Our students will be encouraged to be resilient, make informed choices and progress into adult life being the best they can be.
