At Key Stage 3, we place more emphasis on life skills and independence so that our pupils grow and develop into confident individuals and responsible members of society.
We ensure our children have a chance to put into practice what they are learning in the classroom by visiting local shops, cafés and leisure facilities, so that these skills are applied and embedded in real life situations. We provide the children with safe and appropriate ways to develop their independence and to learn invaluable skills for the future.
At Ivel Valley, we currently have 3 classes in Key Stage 3. There are 2 classes on the main site and a satellite class based at Biggleswade Academy.
The curriculum we offer is topic based – we change topic every half term and we follow a 2 year cycle of curriculum topics. English and Maths are taught as separate subjects, as well as consolidating literacy, numeracy, ICT and Personal skills across our topic work.
