Curriculum Overview

The curriculum is designed to provide all students with an education that is:

  • Broad
    Providing experience in a wide range of subjects and a variety of settings, employing a range of teaching and learning styles.
  • Balanced
    Devoting an appropriate amount of time to each subject, but allowing students a degree of control over their own education.
  • Relevant
    Building upon the experiences of each individual and enabling then to make sense of the world around them so that they are able to develop confidence and independence.

Progression

We aim to ensure:

  • learners are set a target for progression in all subject areas based on prior learning;
  • learners’ achievements are measured in relation to their ability and their targets;
  • learners, parents and guardians are informed of their wards progress at every week interval
  • learners are engaged in discussions about their progress throughout the academic year;
  • where a students’ progression is not in line with expectations the teacher will develop an action plan to support improved progression;
  • Where progression exceeds expectations a more challenging target and set of skill development will be put in place.
