There are four Keyworker Groups, with at least one member of staff to co-ordinate the day and provide holistic support to our pupils. Each group is named after a hill in the Yorkshire Dales.
It can be hard work and involve lots of effort to climb big hills. However, when you get to the top and have a clear vision of what lies ahead, that effort suddenly becomes very worthwhile!
Ingleborough is our KS3 group, made up mainly of year 9 pupils from our partner mainstream schools. The main aim of our work with KS3 pupils is for them to return to school with a better understanding of themselves and what they can contribute to school in a positive manner.
Whernside is one of our full-time KS4 groups. It is usually made up of Year 10 and 11 pupils who are unable to access mainstream schools for a variety of reasons. The pupils follow the PRS core curriculum of English, mathematics, double science, citizenship, PE and PSHE to help them achieve the best possible outcomes for future success. Most Whernside pupils undertake work experience for part of the school week in order to learn vital work and lifeskills.
Penyghent and Sharphaw are more flexible KS4 keyworker groups. Pupils in these groups are generally referred with medical conditions or anxiety. Pupils are taught English, maths and science, dependent on the timetable being followed.
Pupils are often referred to the Penyghent and Sharphaw keyworker group when they first join the PRS. Pupils attend on a part-time basis with the aim of building up teaching time when this is appropriate. Teaching sessions take place during the afternoon on Monday to Thursday and on Friday mornings. Some pupils also undertake work experience during the school week.
