Progress & Outcomes
From the moment a student joins Quorn Hall School, they each make progress.
Many have missed large chunks of formal education or may have experienced difficulties and obstacles along the way. Our focus is on rebuilding their confidence and enabling them to make progress.
Formal progress is tracked and measured using target tracker software and using ‘I CAN’ statements from the National Curriculum, but progress takes more forms than simply academic advancement alone. All progress is celebrated and rewarded in numerous ways from certificates which can be displayed in school or taken home, to reward activities that are chosen by the students themselves.
The overall emphasis is on creating a positive learning culture by gaining an in-depth understanding of what motivates and rewards our students.
"We have never had any setting go through 'C's' plan so thoroughly and meet and understand his needs so well."
In the Upper School our students work towards a variety of qualifications:
Designed to enable students to develop confidence and fluency in Maths and English, Functional Skills equip students with the practical skills to get the most out of education, work and everyday life, and to help them function more confidently, effectively and independently.
Modular in design, AIM qualifications are offered from Entry Level up to Level 1 in a range of subjects including catering, construction and building (woodwork), digital technology, ICT, personal and social development, employability, and more.
A creative, valuable and accessible option, Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents. Arts Award can be achieved at five levels, four qualifications and an introductory award.
It is our aim that all our students leave us having achieved at least one of the qualifications outlined above.
We are in the process of developing GCSE and further Level 2 qualifications which will be available, if appropriate for the individual student, through the 2020/20201 academic year and beyond.
