Planning for Partial School Opening

In line with Government guidelines we are working with parents of Year 10 students and our staff to develop and implement safe strategies to extend school provision to Year 10 students along with children of key workers from June 15th . As soon as our school plan is agreed it will be published to all parents.

Business Studies/Enterprise

Business Studies/Enterprise is a Key Stage 4 option only.

The curriculum addresses sector needs and skills gaps in areas such as finance, customer service and marketing. Students are expected to use local business examples. Haygrove School has good local business and industry connections and these are used to ensure students engage with real-life business case studies. Applying their knowledge to real business situations develops confidence, as students realise they are wrestling with scenarios that business owners and employees face on a day-to-day basis.

Underpinning the curriculum is an emphasis on AFL (Assessment for Learning), which encourages students to reflect on their progress, recognise where their strengths are and where improvement is needed. We place a lot of emphasis on techniques that enable students to learn how to learn effectively.

The world of business is changing rapidly, due to advances in technology and ICT, and therefore, we ensure our students are able to gain expertise in relevant ICT skills via innovative approaches to learning. We champion collaborative learning via ICT, where students can share and support each other in their learning, increasing their engagement with the subject and a consolidation of understanding.

BTEC qualifications provide students with a qualification that will help them enter employment in the business sector or to progress to further vocational qualifications, such as the Edexcel BTEC Higher Nationals in Business. It enables students to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes that are essential for successful performance in working life.
