Principles

Our curriculum is founded on the principles that we want to provide all our young people with a route to academic and vocational success, through personalised programmes of study that will enable them to achieve their highest potential in education, training and work.

Our curriculum aims to:

  • Improve outcomes in English and Maths by developing pupils’ CORE SKILLS, address gaps in their knowledge and build on what has been taught before.
  • Identify pupils’ needs quickly and then initiate a PERSONALISED approach in order to meet those specific needs.
  • Ensure that our pupils see the value of what they are learning through real life experiences which make it RELEVANT to their lives.
  • Promote achievement for everyone and ensure all pupils are valued, safe, nurtured, healthy, active and INCLUDED.
  • Provide the platform to challenge, ENGAGE and motivate our young people in their learning.
  • Implement a rigorous approach to the teaching of READING which develops pupils’ confidence and enjoyment in reading.
  • Develop a learning environment where teachers develop strong RELATIONSHIPS with their pupils and are able to have a positive effect on pupils’ self esteem and are allowed the time and space in the curriculum for character education.
  • Meet the needs of our pupils with SEND and give them the knowledge and culture capital to succeed in life.
  • Encourage pupils to reflect on their own learning, strengths and areas to develop and identify the NEXT STEPS on their learning journey.
