- recognise children’s prior learning
- provide first hand learning experiences
- allow the children to develop interpersonal skills
- build resilience
- become creative, critical thinkers.
Our approach is built around a recognition that all our pupils are individuals. We understand that some children may require the curriculum to be tailored to their specific needs. Consequently, while our curriculum provides a rigorous framework to teach from, our intention is also that our curriculum exhibits fluidity and flexibility to adapt to varying needs and experiences.
The ultimate goal of our curriculum is that children leave the academy equipped for the next stage in their education. Furthermore, they have a sense of belonging to a community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make links to prior learning and experiences and to be successful - achieving the best they can, in all they do.
