Child Development

Students in Year 11 are studying the BTEC Children's Play, Leaning and Development course at level 2. This course involves three units, one of which is an external exam.  The exam was taken in Year 10.

We expect our students to achieve at least their target level or grade at all times, and encourage students to exceed these targets by offering high quality teaching and support. Students attended revision sessions prior to the examination and we are always available to help if students are having difficulties with their coursework.  It is essential students keep up to date with the seven assignments that form 75% of the final grade.

Year 9 - Unit 1.  Patterns of Child Development.  This is the unit that is externally examined at the end of Year 10.  It is worth 25 % of final grade. 

Year 10 - Unit 1 continued and Unit 3.  The Principles of Early Years Practice.  This consists of 3 assignments. 

Year 11- Unit 3 continued and Unit 2. Promoting Childrens Development through Play.  The Principles of Early Years Practice.  This consists of 4 assignments.

As we move forward with the current year 9 and 10 students, and following students, they will be studying a different course. They will be following the Cambridge National, Child Development. This course involves three units, one of which is an external exam.
