Our education programme aims to assess where each child is on their learning journey and support them to prepare successfully for their future.
Children arrive at AWW from a variety of backgrounds and with a wide range of educational needs. Most of the children we look after have been out of formal education for periods of time or have been unsettled in this environment. Our primary aim is to establish the learning needs of each child, their strengths and interests, and their goals for the future, and to create a personalised learning pathway.
For some children, the most appropriate pathway might be to attend a mainstream or independent school or college of further education, and we work closely with local institutions to facilitate this. However, we also provide education through a ‘home school’ model for children for whom this is more appropriate.
The aim of our educational provision is to help all children achieve personal success, whatever it looks like for that individual child. From climbing mountains to achieving their first ever academic awards, we support all children to achieve outstanding personal outcomes.
We believe that every child has unique strengths, abilities and potential, and we acknowledge and celebrate their progress and achievements.
