The key stage 4 and college curriculum offers extensive provision through ability ´pathways´. These pathways include access to accredited courses and qualifications, work related learning, F.E. links and an extensive life skills programme which includes an independent travelling skills project with an identified member of staff.
Learners with PMLD also have access to a personalised sensory curriculum centred on basic life skills and the development of individual levels of independence. All learners are encouraged to be young adults, learning and practising the key skills needed in everyday life, the world of work and further education. Learners gain accreditation for their work and benefit from vocational experience as well as careers advice and guidance. Work related learning and enterprise activities at key stage 4 and in the college are an integral part of the post 16 curriculum. This strong work related dimension ensures that learners have opportunities to develop their self-confidence and skills to achieve their future economic well being.
The curriculum at Mill Green School and College is enhanced through educational visits, field trips and residential trips. All classes have the opportunity to go on at least one outing each half term to complement an area of the curriculum and full use is made of local facilities such as museums, art galleries, theatres, historical sites and sites of scientific interest. Extensive use is made of the local community and supporting partners are regularly invited into school to support various projects.
The curriculum is also enriched by the provision of planned theme weeks once a term. Examples of such weeks are Multi-cultural week, Health and Fitness week and Enterprise week. In addition to this, further enrichment opportunities occur throughout the year such as green day, church services once a term and whole school events such as Sports Day, regular coffee mornings and performing arts activities. Extra curricular activities are offered throughout the year such as ICT club, Multi-skills club and Health and Beauty club.
