Students have been keeping busy over the Easter holidays, not just eating chocolate, but practising and refining their Independent Living Skills (ILS)!
Our Waking Day Curriculum means that learning extends beyond the school day and into the residential houses. Each weekday after school, our team of care staff are able to support homework, practising musical instruments, cooking and doing independent reading or studying.
We also encourage this learning when students are at home during holidays and half terms, and it is a great opportunity for students to show off their new-found skills to their families!
During the holiday, we have received some brilliant photos of students getting stuck in at home and practising these all important skills, whilst having fun. These really are skills for life, and will help students become as independent as possible ready for when they leave NCW and go on to further education or employment.
Well done everyone!
