The School provides educational support for pupils who are unable to be in mainstream school by virtue of a decision made by a medical practitioner. 

Pupils are entitled to a full time education, or as much education as their medical needs will allow. 

Pupils are taught either in the home or in one of four bases located in the county. 

Pupils have access to a wide range of GCSE and BTEC programs at KS4. 

At KS3 pupils follow either their home school's curriculum or they will follow a Pilgrim led curriculum. 

At KS1-2 pupils always follow the curriculum of their mainstream school. 

Pupils have full access to careers education, PSHE and our own resilience and post traumatic growth course Resilient Me. 

Careers Education

We provide a careers education and impartial guidance  programme in line with latest Government guidelines.  This consists of pastoral support and a programme of  careers education throughout key stage 3 and 4  delivered through the tutorial system.  Year 11 pupils taught in the home are given pastoral support to make post 16 choices.

Save the Children - Christmas Jumper Day

 A Christmas Elf Dressed up for Jumper Day

Hi Everybody,

Today at Sleaford it was Christmas Jumper Day!!! Pupils and staff wore the jazziest, brightest, over the top jumpers I have ever seen and everybody got into the Christmas spirit in a big way. Donations for the Save The Children fund were greatly received. There were games lined up and prizes galore and everybody had such fun. Even the candidates for RSO interviews arrived looking very festive! We all had a fantastic day. 

Thanks everyone, from your cheeky Christmas DR  Elf

London Trip December 2017

On Wednesday 13th December this year, 16 students and 8 staff took a train to London. We walked two miles through London taking in the iconic sites along the river; the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, The London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Shard. We walked over Waterloo Bridge to Covent Garden and down Drury Lane and Museum Street to The British Museum where we saw the Mummies of Ancient Egypt. We had lunch at the museum and then we went by taxis via Buckingham Palace to the Apollo Victoria Theatre to see a performance of the musical Wicked. We then jumped into more taxis to go back to Kings Cross Station, where we managed to fit in seeing the Harry Potter Platform 9 and three quarters before catching the train back to Lincolnshire. It was a full and tiring yet incredibly worthwhile day in terms of broadening horizons,  having new experiences, learning new skills, being sociable, building resilience and having fun!

All the best

Btec Animal Care - Handling Day

 MillipedeHedgehogBearded Dragon

                                                                                                  

 On the 5th December, we had visitors of various reptile and small animal species. The animals included: a hedgehog, a millipede, a frog, tarantulas, a scorpion and a snake. An interesting thing I found out was that if you stroke a hedgehog, the spikes don’t prick you and it feels like a rough rug. Also the bearded dragon’s chin turns black when it starts to become angry. When I held the millipede, it tickled my hands and it wrapped its self around them.
