Introduction To Education At NFC
Overview of Education
New Forest Care has its own Registered School which is exceptionally well resourced, ensuring that needs and interests can be met.
Young people are often placed with us having been excluded from both mainstream and special schools. Some have not attended any form of education for many years, or are school phobic.
Classes are offered either on a 1:1 or very small group basis to afford sufficient individual support to pupils. Each pupil has their own Individual Learning Plan.
A full curriculum is creatively delivered by the dedicated Education team, supported by our SENCO and Head Teacher. Close links are maintained alongside colleges for further education and businesses for many vocational opportunities.
The music department also boasts a state of the art recording studio, where instruments can be learned, played and tracks recorded. There are after school curriculum activities available including a drama group.
There is a working farm which forms part of the education department’s horticultural and agricultural studies. Pupils are encouraged to take an active part in looking after the animals or growing vegetables.
