Ensuring Equality of Access to the Curriculum

A key aspect of our ethos at Bohunt School Worthing is our belief that we need to develop memorable learning experiences. This includes curriculum trips and visits. We also believe that all students benefit greatly from a residential experience. The Pupil Premium will be used to support students whose families are on low incomes to access all of these programmes.

We believe that talents such as sport, music, dance and drama will only develop into a lifelong passion by providing a high quality extended curriculum. The student premium will also help all students access this curriculum and help students discover their talents. For example:

  • Support for Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • Free Music Tuition
  • Access to Sports Clubs
  • Support for Educational Trips

Securing Success for Students

When students enter Bohunt School Worthing we ensure we know and understand the starting points for their academic progress. We gain valuable information from their Primary Schools and additionally we carry out several important baseline assessments; for example, their reading ages.

The pupil premium will be spent on ensuring that all students are making expected levels of progress and to ensure they are properly prepared for the next stage of their education. Throughout their time at Bohunt School Worthing, we will intervene to support students who are not achieving their potential. This will be done through interventions such as:

  • One to One Tuition
  • Provision of equipment such as I Pads
  • Subject Specific Resources

Supporting Students’ Well-Being and Behaviour

There are many students who require additional support to succeed at school. Creating a bespoke mentoring programme will support students emotionally and also ensure that they are challenged to work hard, succeed and overcome their barriers to learning. The Pupil Premium funding will enable us to draw on an array of interventions, including support through:

  • Counselling
  • Mentoring
  • Workshops

Values and ethos

To be a dynamic, innovative learning environment delivering a creative, personalised curriculum and ethos that is encapsulated in three simple words: Enjoy, Respect, Achieve.

To develop young people who are game-changers, innovators and leaders. Who not only will achieve outstanding grades but will never be afraid to throw themselves into something new.
To use pedagogical approaches which maintain the highest expectations alongside a sensitivity to the individual needs of every learner, concentrate on maintaining the very best standards of learning and teaching and take every opportunity to recognise and reward achievement.

Enjoy
We deliver Challenge based learning, a style of teaching that sees students taking responsibility for and control of their learning. It is facilitated by the integration of IT, innovative learning environments across all subjects, the highest expectations and a focus on the combining of knowledge with softer skills such as creativity, teamwork and habits of mind. This enables engagement with a stimulating, vibrant environment that allows our students to broaden their horizons, develop their interests and engenders a passion for learning.

Respect
Respect is the bridge between enjoyment and achievement. Both inside and outside the classroom we promote a strong sense of self-worth combined with a respect for others. Our Houses, which are effectively small schools within the School, enable students to support each other and take on new challenges. These opportunities and other aspects of school life develop their motivation and independence along with the skills and resilience needed to succeed in the future.

Achieve
Richness and diversity of opportunities across our creative and personalised curriculum enable the highest achievement not just academically but also in terms of a student’s personal development. Our core purpose is the provision of high quality learning and teaching through engagement with the latest research and initiatives such as; a specialist STEM curriculum, flexible learning spaces, links with industry and immersion languages. These along with exceptional experiences outside of the classroom and beyond the school gates such as the Ipad band and expeditions give our students the opportunity to develop the mindset, skills and confidence to become leaders and game changers.
