WELCOME TO OUR RESOURCE HUB

Here you can access articles, advice and news stories relating to learning differences, interventions and specialist support.

  • Character
    In addition to supporting students to thrive academically, we enable our students to flourish on a personal level. Understanding values such as morality, respect, leadership, perseverance, and empathy will help them succeed in the adult world. Other important life skills we embed include the ability to make informed decisions, teamworking and knowing the difference between right and wrong.
  • Competence
    Our activities aim to develop proficiency socially, academically and emotionally. We define competence as having the tools to master different situations and scenarios, for example managing one’s emotions, knowing a topic inside-out, or being able to communicate feelings effectively.
  • Confidence
    Empowering students with confidence in their own abilities and worth is a crucial driver of the Cavendish curriculum. Our confidence model covers four elements: communication, independence, responsibility, self-awareness.
  • Creativity
    Recognising and nurturing our students’ innate creativity is a vital part of our approach. Building creative skills feature strongly in the curriculum, for example by supporting students to broaden their thinking so they recognise more than one solution to a given challenge. Another desirable outcome is the ability to capture and break down a broad creative concept into manageable blocks to help our students realise their creative visions.
  • Learning outside the classroom
    Students who may struggle in a traditional classroom setting often thrive in an outdoor environment. Experiencing success helps them realise what they can achieve when they challenge themselves. Learning outside the classroom inspires young minds and takes many forms, for example studying academic subjects on the farm or at forest school. Our adventure and residential trips are designed to build confidence while away from home; they also encourage teamwork, resilience and problem solving. Sport and physical activity as education complements the mental health and wellbeing benefits of spending time in outdoors.
