All staff at 3 Dimensions School are committed to delivering a holistic and individualised curriculum that is full of rich experiences for all.
We want our pupils to be happy and feel a sense of belonging. Our aim is for our pupils to acquire the skills and knowledge for resilience, to be friendly and able to build positive relationships and ultimately to access life and be successful in school and in their future in whatever way they choose.
A typical school day will incorporate classroom-based lessons, life skills in the community and extra-curricular activities.
We follow the National Curriculum objectives for all subjects, which are modified to meet pupils’ needs. Students are taught according to their ability, not age or Key Stage.
In many educational settings Forest School is simply offered as an add-on to the main core and foundation curriculum. At 3 Dimensions School this is not the case. Our young people need to learn about the world around them and be provided with the freedom and space to develop life skills, work on their social abilities, and cultivate their independence.
Because we understand the need and importance to offer outdoor and physical education in a more diverse way, we provide ‘Make a Difference’(M.A.D.) days. Through M.A.D. pupils take part in a range of outdoor pursuits, including Paddle boarding, archery, team building skills and surfing. This allows our students to be resilient, confident, and happy individuals.
Sex and Relationship Education is taught throughout the school within the Jigsaw PSHE programme and also as a discrete subject within the PSCHE program on an individual basis.
