POST 16 PROVISION
Bishopswood School is unable to offer a post-16 curriculum but we understand that some young people may choose to transfer to a different school at 16 years old, to follow a special needs key stage 5 programme. All of our pupils are supported in their transition to the next phase regardless of where they choose to go. A transition period is tailored to the needs of the student and where support is needed it will be provided by Bishopwood school. We routinely set up bespoke transition programmes with post-16 providers in Year 11 and, where appropriate, work experience and a mini enterprise project.
We have put together some information about further education opportunities in our local area, see Guide to post-16 education below, and here are some direct links to:
Special Schools in Oxfordshire
Special Schools in Reading
Young people with Special Needs may be entitled to be in education until they are 25yrs old, the paper below (Gov FE Implementation Pack) outlines the rights of young people and the obligations of education providers.
