New ways of learning
- We believe that all students are different and that they learn in different ways and at different rates.
- The core curriculum of English, Maths, Science, ICT and languages will be delivered using a specially developed ‘STEPS Curriculum´ where students will be encouraged to work at their own pace, with their teachers having set goals for them.
- They will also benefit from a thematic, problem-solving approach in other curriculum areas where they will develop the personal learning and thinking skills that will enable them to become successful learners at school but also throughout their lives.
Personal Tutorial time
Students at EWS Academy will meet with their personal tutor once every three weeks for 10 minutes to discuss progress towards personal goals.
During the tutorial session, students will evaluate their progress and plan future work with the support of their personal tutor. Any areas of difficulty will be highlighted and strategies agreed to overcome these.
This tutorial will be recorded in the student logbook which is a very important part of their Academy experience as they use it to record their goals, strategies and learning tasks for the week.
