Our goal is to create a curriculum, which engages pupils and equips them with the skills and knowledge for life in modern Britain.


We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through our own ‘vision and values’ and E-ACTs core principles, which infuses the ethos and work of the Academy. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering the understanding of these concepts and, in particular Humanities, RE and PSHE. This provides excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. Children embrace these concepts with enthusiasm and demonstrate a good understanding of their application to their own lives.


Reedswood makes considerable effort to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience both within and beyond their own local community – during which these concepts are explored. For example: visits to the local places of worship; elaborating and embracing different cultures through Humanities lessons; participating in a wide range of sporting events; maintaining our local allotment and through regular assemblies.
