The Walton Group currently run as a year 13 group at Harding House.
Post-16 students follow a personalised programme with the emphasis on building confidence, independent living skills, personal development and key skills (Communication, Number Skills and ICT).
For students in the Walton group there is an emphasis on Community projects. They are currently working closely with Aylesbury Youth Action to develop strong links in the community. Recent links include working with the elderly residents at Churchill Court.
There is a strong focus on healthy living, where students learn to cook healthy meals and take part in regular exercise activities.
In Sports and Leisure, we have established good links with Aylesbury High School, where our students work with their Sports Leaders. Our students have the opportunity to develop their sports skills in team games e.g. football, basketball and cricket.
The group are currently working on their Duke of Edinburgh (Bronze) Awards. They are gaining camp craft and team work skills. They are also developing their map reading skills in orienteering sessions, led by Bucks Sport. Local bus journeys are undertaken by the group, to explore community facilities. This year, we will be visiting High Wycombe, where they will play Ten Pin bowling. We are also planning to visit the Healthy Living Centre.
All students’ work is accredited and certificated by OCR on the National Skills Profile and Life and Living Skills schemes at Entry Level. Students prepare an interim Record of Achievement at the end of the year, together with their initial Life Story.
At present, there are 5, year 13 students in the Walton Group, with 1 teacher, 2 learning support assistants and input from the Speech and Language Department.
