Health and Social Care

Through our Health & Social Care lessons we intend all students to progress in their understanding of the world they live in and the issues faced by vulnerable members of society who use a wide range of Health, Social Care and Early Years Services.

As a result of this we hope for all students to relate theory learnt in lessons to everyday life as well as reflect on their own experiences in relation to accessing Care Services.  We aim to develop students own attitudes with positive values and be empathetically aware of the effects that negative attitudes will have on those around them.

Our Expectations

  1. ALL Sixth Form students are expected to complete 1 hour of independent study for every hour spent in the classroom.
  2. Level 3 Exteneded certificate in Health & Social Care is an  A-Level accepted by all universities in the UCAS system and carries the same value as any other A-level subject.
  3. Key Stage 5 students will complete portfolio and exam units, all of which carry the same ‘weighting’ towards the final year grade and qualification, so all units require the same consistent level of effort.
  4. All Health & Social Care students who are absent during lessons, must attend after school catch up classes to maximise their marks and complete missed work, preventing gaps in learning.

Catch-Up Sessions

Health & Social Care Catch up sessions for Year 10 & Year 11 will run every Wednesday and Thursday from 3.00 - 4.00 pm in Room 61

Year 12 & Year 13 students are always welcome to work in other A-Level Health and Social Care lessons if a free computer is available.

It is advisable that all students spend some free time extending knowledge by reading around the subjects they are covering in class as well as watching TV programmes or documentaries with some link.

Students in all HSC classes will have the opportunity to gain extra credit and effort points by taking part in the 'monthly merit' competition

All students must attempt all levels of work to increase merit scores and overall grade.
