The Levett School is a Pupil Referral Unit in Doncaster that provides an educational provision for Key Stage 1/2/3 pupils who have been permanently excluded or at risk of permanent exclusion. The provision is set across two sites, the primary site is on Melton Road, Sprotborough and the secondary site is at Barnby Dun Road, Wheatley.
The aim of the school is to provide short term provision for young people to access a school curriculum but to also provide therapeutic support to address the issues that have resulted in them becoming disengaged with school. Pupils are taught in smaller class group sizes to enable higher levels of staff/pupil ratio to support in overcoming any barriers to learning and to reengage with their education and improve their own self confidence and esteem.
The redesigned curriculum has a topic based approach where all subjects are taught around a learning focus each half term. We aim to provide a practical curriculum to ensure pupils can access the topics but also bring their learning to life through a variety of activities that are delivered in and out of the classroom environment.
All pupils have high levels of pastoral support. Pupils have a class teacher who is supported by a team of teaching assistants within the classroom, in addition there are a range of staff who deliver bespoke programmes of support outside the classroom to support children in their learning and managing their behaviour. The therapeutic aspect of the school curriculum is seen as a vital part of the schools work with its pupils, the aim of the school is to not only provide an education for children who are unable to access mainstream education, but to identify the reasons why they have become disengaged and to provide support and appropriate therapy to enable they are able to reintegrate back to their mainstream school.
I am delighted to welcome you to The Levett School. My dedicated staff team and I are committed to providing an outstanding education and support provision to reengage young people in their learning and to help them in developing their self- confidence and self- esteem.
Our vision for the school is to become a centre of excellence that provides support for its pupils in a caring and welcoming environment. We also have high expectations of our pupils and aim to provide a curriculum that both inspires and challenges academically.
The best way to see what we can offer is to visit the school and look at us in action, all visitors are warmly welcomed to the sites to see our staff and pupils at work.
