Novaturient (adj.) desiring or seeking powerful change in one’s life, behavior, or situation (pronunciation/"nO-va-‘tUr-E-ent)
Both our schools are SEBD special educational needs schools, Novaturient School and Ness Point School are both registered to deliver alternative education to students aged 11 to 16. this means that as an education provider we can offer support for a wider range of students across Norfolk and Suffolk.
All our students currently have Educational Health Care Plans to support both their social and emotional needs as well as their academic progression. Each student is going through their own unique life path demonstrating different stages within that educational journey, both socially, emotionally and academically.
Here at PCT Education we feel this needs an individual approach to the curriculum allowing us to meet all students' needs alongside stretching their ability.
Social and Emotional Learning
Addressing negative behaviour fundamentally keeps people safe, but it is also essential to develop a seamless way to address the gaps in social and emotional development, so students are better equipped to manage life changes. Some schools promote academic achievement as their overall objective and see this as more important than building emotional intelligence and equipping students with the ability to participate in society. We believe that until these gaps are addressed, students will not be equipped with key life skills such as; keeping themselves safe, developing motivation, aspirations and encouraging a learning mind-set. Therefore we believe social and emotional learning should have as much emphasis in the curriculum as other subjects, if not more.
