The indicative sanctions table indicates the type of incident that might warrant exclusion, but the list within the table is not exhaustive. Reintegration meetings should always follow a period of fixed term-exclusion.|

|The school's approach to the curriculum||The Garibaldi School Curriculum Intent Statement|
Our school is hugely proud of our heritage, identity and place within the community and our academic curriculum celebrates and complements this. We ensure that our students can see themselves within our curriculum whilst learning about the rich and diverse world within which they live.
We deliberately plan the core knowledge of our curriculum to build upon student’s previous learning experiences in school and at home. We are academically ambitious for all of our students and the choice of knowledge and skills goes beyond the National Curriculum requirements. The learning secured at each key stage enables our students to progress confidently on to further study, training and the world of work and lead happy and fulfilled adult lives.
Subject specific knowledge is deliberately applied to a diverse range of experiences and perspectives to transform students understanding of the society within which we live and feel empowered to positively influence it. This is further supported by our amazing personal development and enrichment programmes that develop the whole person and provide exciting experiences outside of the classroom. Through our curriculum students embrace the rich and varied opportunities that life has to offer.
We implement our curriculum by:
• Scaffolding learning to ensure that all students, regardless of their starting points or needs, are challenged, access the curriculum in its entirety and realise their full potential.
• Explicitly teaching oracy skills and embedding regular opportunities for discussion and debate. Students will express themselves confidently and appropriately in a range of situations.
• Presenting student with high quality texts that enhance vocabulary and develop a love of reading.
• Providing timely feedback and opportunities for self and peer evaluation.
• Teaching the skills needed and the personal characteristics required to become and enquiring, independent learner.
|Curriculum content||Key Stage 3|
Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 students are taught a balanced curriculum of English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, Spanish, Music, Physical Education, Performing Arts, Art, Design Technology, Food Technology, Geography, History and Personal Development and Equality, Diversity and Religion. Students are placed in sets according to Primary School performance information, CAT scores and Reading Age scores. This is reviewed regularly with standard assessments within core departments.
Core subjects have capacity to move students across sets according to their timetabling. Each Year groups’ Achievement Lead has oversight of set changes and works closely with subject Lead Teachers.
Support for students with learning difficulties and disabilities (LDD) is provided by teaching assistants within mainstream lessons or as a targeted group based in the Student Support Department.
On some occasions, there is also a small amount of short term withdrawal targeted towards those individual students or small groups who most need it, delivered by a teaching assistant based in Student Support.

|How we meet the 16-19 study programme requirements||In KS5 students are offered a range of A Levels and vocational courses. It is usual that students opt for three qualifications. Alongside having a specific mentor to work with them, students also have timetabled independent study sessions alongside timetabled Personal Development sessions to support students through the 16-19 studies. The Personal Development Programme is developed with students for the students and covers topics which are statutory and relevant to them, such as Sex and Relationships Education, finance and budgeting, mental health, and a healthy mindset. Students also cover Fundamental British Values within Personal Development sessions. Our Personal Development offer also includes outside visits from Universities and Apprenticeship providers who work with our students on key skills such as CV writing, UCAS applications and job or apprenticeship applications. We also encourage students to visit as many University providers as possible and support them with applications to attend summer schools. Students are also expected to play a wider role in Garibaldi School and take up a range of opportunities, such as leading sporting clubs or working and supporting younger pupils in their studies. Staff and students have opportunities to shape the Sixth Form with regular staff and student voice and through the Year 12 and Year 13 Student Leaders. It is also expected that all Year 12 students will complete a work experience to further support their next steps post school life.|

|Equality Objectives||Our Equality Objectives 2021 - 2024|
Our equality objectives are based on our analysis of data and other information. Our equality objectives focus on those areas where we have agreed to take action to improve equality and tackle disadvantages.
We will regularly review the progress we are making to meet our equality objectives.
Our Equality Objectives are:
• To improve the progress and attainment of SEND pupils.
• To promote mental health and wellbeing in children with protected characteristics.
• To narrow the gap in attendance for pupils with protected characteristics as defined by the Equality Act, by fostering good relationships with parents and carers and seeking to understand the barriers to good attendance.
• To increase the extent to which all pupils, including in particular those with protected characteristics as defined by the Equality Act, feel valued and confident, and in consequence more likely to achieve their potential.
• To narrow the gap between vulnerable groups of pupils and other pupils in access to homework support provision, and in this way to reduce or remove inequalities in attainment throughout the school, particularly inequalities relating to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act.
• To ensure that the staff are aware of current legislation surrounding Equality, Diversity and Disability and their responsibilities.

|Careers Guidance and Access For Education and Training Providers Policy Statement||INTRODUCTION|
Students need a planned programme of activities to enable them to gain the knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes and attributes required to make well informed choices about their 11 -18 pathways and to enable them to manage their careers and sustain employment throughout their lives.
Effective careers education is impartial and considers young people's personal abilities, needs and preferences. It is motivating and it raises aspiration, by providing clear targets and by encouraging young people to participate in learning and to attain qualifications to reach their full potential.
A clear picture of the current and projected local and national labour market helps to support students’ future career intentions and helps inform future education and training plans. The Garibaldi School has a duty to provide careers education from Year 7 to 13 and to give students access to careers information and impartial guidance. Careers features as a key part of the Personal Development Curriculum which is complemented by a diverse and extensive character building, enrichment and extracurricular/extended study programme. Students are provided with a multitude of opportunities to try new things, discover new interests, develop their talents and connect with others more deeply, thus developing their emotional resilience, personal identity and long-term goals.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The policy aims to detail the procedures and guidelines for the delivery and availability of Careers Education and Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG).
