Alternative Provision Curriculum
Chessbrook ESC provides schools with access to quality alternative provision within South West Hertfordshire. We work with our providers to ensure they offer outstanding provision where students have access to accredited courses to ensure they are successful at Key Stage 4.
In November 2019 we launched an assessment based alternative curriculum model for Key Stage 3 that motivates, challenges and re-engages students back into learning.
As part of our service, we quality assure all of our providers to ensure they meet our high standards around safeguarding, health and safety and the courses in which they deliver. We also provide annual training to all staff who work at our provisions to ensure they have the relevant training and guidance on how to successfully work with our students.
On a daily basis, our staff visits each provision to check in with the students. During this visit they will complete a short report that records what the students were learning and any action points. This information is then used to feedback to our schools so they are kept in the loop with regards to behaviour, engagement and progress.
Each half term, our providers are asked to complete a report on each student which is shared with the students, parents and their school. This documents what qualification the student is working towards and what they need to do in order to improve.
