The majority of pupils have had no educational provision outside of Alnwood and many have missed significant amounts of education in the past and require basic skills.
The education staff at Alnwood deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that is tailored to the needs of individual pupils. Appropriate accreditations are offered in the form of A Levels, GCSEs, Entry Level awards, Functional Skills qualifications, or Unit Awards. Subjects offered include English Language, English Literature, Maths, Science, Art, Design and Technology, Food Technology, Music, and PE.
If pupils can access NHS Section 17 leave, then education staff work closely with the team around the pupil to facilitate educational leaves. A key event at Alnwood is ‘Takeover Day’ – a national initiative where in-patients are given the opportunity to take on the role of a member of staff for the day. Where appropriate, further in house support is provided with vocational and/or careers information and guidance.
Curriculum enrichment is delivered in conjunction with health professionals and tailored to the needs of the young people. On occasion, external providers will deliver specific workshops.
