The Explore Pathway is for students who are able to leave Elms Bank to seek supported living and employment. Students in the Explore Pathway may leave Elms Bank at Year 14 to attend an external college course or they may seek employment through a supported internship programme. Very often students within the Explore Pathway need longer within a college environment to develop the skills needed to be able to go into employment.
At Elms Bank College (Key Stage 5) they study a range of ASDAN accredited courses.
(Some students may find the Internships a more appropriate route for Key Stage 5. At this point they will follow our Inspire Pathway, from which they can access a Library Internship and / or a Hospital Internship.)
Independence and communication underpins all the curriculum and all students are supported by SALT programmes that run throughout the curriculum.
All students have access to 5 PSHE drop down days in which they study British Values, Bullying, Relationships, Diversity, Internet Safety, Emotional Well-Being/Self Image, and Drug and Alcohol awareness.
Wider curriculum opportunities are celebrated and captured within the students personalised Applied Learning Passport. Within this document students record their involvement within extracurricular opportunities for example: clubs, arts week, the school play, sporting events, PSHE drop down days and residentials.
