Curriculum

 

Here at the Bishopton PRU we promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils. One of the ways we do this is through assemblies. All pupils are encouraged to attend assemblies. During assembly we celebrate pupil achievements, learn to respect one another and develop effective relationships. Assemblies support our teaching on British values. Parents have a right to request their child to be withdrawn from assemblies. For more information please contact Bishopton staff.

At Bishopton we are committed to the principle that all students have the right to the highest quality of education we can provide.

This means that we seek to ensure:

  • breadth and balance for all;
  • appropriate levels of expectation and genuine challenge;
  • relevance, continuity and progression in learning;

We achieve this by providing courses of study and teaching methods which are tailored to the wide range of needs, interests and aspirations of our students.

KS3

Key Stage 3 will run from Year 7 to Year 8. All students will be given the opportunity to study a broad range of National Curriculum subjects. The emphasis here will be on provision of a variety of experiences and a depth of learning within these. Students in Year 7 will be taught in mixed ability classes, except in Maths where some setting is possible. In Year 8 students will be set by ability in all core subjects and in modern foreign languages. Academic rigour will be ensured across all subjects.

KS4

In Years 9, 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4), students will take GCSE/BTEC courses. Students will follow between 10 and 12 courses, depending on their specific needs, aptitudes and post-16 aspirations.  Almost all our students will take the five English Baccalaureate subjects (English, Mathematics, History or Geography, Sciences and a Modern Foreign Language) as far as is appropriate to their aptitudes and potential.  Students choose a further 4 GCSE/BTEC courses from Art and Design, Design and Technology, Engineering, Health & Social Care, Art and Photography, Physical Education, Sport and Triple Science. All students study GCSE Religious Studies, supporting the ethos of All Saints. All students will receive personalised advice and guidance about this when choosing KS4 Options in Year 8.
