NWKAPS actively encourages all pupils to take personal responsibility for their actions. One of the aims of each centre is to create a sense of ownership and belonging. Each centre is a discrete community catering for the specific needs of the pupils who learn at the centre.
The Positive 'behaviour for learning' System, which measures individual success towards meeting personal targets, encourages all pupils to be active participants in their own progress. Everything we do involves talking and encouraging open dialogue.
Student Voice recognises the importance of listening to pupils and seeking their views in creating a more conducive and productive learning environment. All pupils are stakeholders in our organisation and their opinions are given value.
All staff at NWKAPS support the pupils in learning to manage their social and emotional issues thus enabling them to access fully their educational opportunities.
Pupils at Key Stage 4 are also supported with their career choices post 16. An intense programme of support throughout Year 11 enables our pupils to make appropriate choices for their education and/or training post 16. NWKAPS aims to support pupils in the transition from school to college.
