KS3 Curriculum Overview

In Key Stage 3, Rise Carr College does not offer a placement that is a long term alternative to mainstream or special education. It is a short term provision which seeks to support all those involved in securing a successful transition into the most appropriate educational setting for the individual, whether it be returning back to mainstream or a more specialised provision.

Pupils access the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and PSHE with the opportunity of to experience a wide range of other subjects such as humanities, catering, DT, land studies, art, enterprise, P.E and bike maintenance.

Deep Experience Days

Deep Experiences Days are held termly with the intention of developing student’s real life experiences and social skills. Activities are designed to complement the topics taught through the term in English, maths and science. Many activities are problem solving based and students are given challenges which encourages both independent learning and team work. We strive to build the self- esteem and self- confidence of the individual, which offers the opportunities to build their resilience and self-worth. At the end of a Deep Experience Day, students take part in a deep reflection about their own development, both academically and socially.

Here are some of the Deep Experience Days we have covered so far:

  • The Apprentice: Easter Eggs
  • Who Killed Santa?
  • Building an Eco-House
  • Rise Carr Olympics
  • The Apprentice: World Book Day
  • Sustainability & Recycling
  • British Values
  • Go Karting

For the future, we are currently planning:
