GADE Information 

GADE is our KS3 assessment programme.  It is a shared educational provision with mainstream schools which enables Chessbrook to offer expertise, strategies and external advice to schools and parents. Students will be educated within GADE in order to support the gathering of evidence towards an EHCP application or to support their reintegration back into a mainstream setting or into specialist provision.  

GADE is based on a therapeutic approach alongside the National Curriculum standards and aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum to the students, promoting their holistic development and preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Our SEND team play a key role in assessment and setting personalised targets for students through an Individual Progress Plan (IPP).  

  • The GADE programme is up to 24 weeks
  • Students will attend five morning or afternoon sessions a week
  • Students must attend four sessions of Stop & Think with a parent/carer. 
  • Students will be placed in appropriate groups based on need.
