Post-Primary Department

 

There are 5 base classes in the post primary department in Harberton North.  The class sizes vary from 7 to 13, reflecting the needs of the students.  There are generally 3-4 adults in a class team which ensures students can be appropriately supported.  Our students continue to follow the statutory elements of the curriculum: English, Maths and Learning for Life and Work.  Learning for Life and Work is made up of Citizenship, Personal Development, Employability and Home Economics.  We have a dedicated Life Skills teacher with the responsibility for delivering Home Economics to our KS3/4 students.   

 

There are 2 pathways for students in post-primary: academic and vocational.  The academic pathway is delivered in base classes, with each teacher delivering the curriculum to their students using a range of teaching approaches.  In KS4 the students will begin Entry Level Qualifications in English, Maths and Life Skills with CCEA. The vocational programme has been developed and will begin a full rollout in September 2022 for students from Years 8-10.  KS3/4 students will participate in this vocational programme in either Harberton or at Springvale where they will have the experience of learning at a training organisation.  The vocational programme has been developed to help the students to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible.
