Our academy curriculum is underpinned by the values that we hold at our academy: balanced, rigorous and challenging; coherent and relevant and Knowledge rich. The curriculum is the means by which the academy achieves its objective of educating children in the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need in order to lead fulfilling lives.
We plan the curriculum carefully, so that there is coherence and full coverage of all aspects of the National Curriculum and early learning goals, and there is planned progression in all curriculum areas.
At Key Stage 1 and 2 the curriculum at our academy places a greater emphasis on both core and foundation subjects , and we teach these subjects separately. This means that, for example, a child may concentrate in one term on a history topic, and then switch to a greater emphasis on geography in the next term. Over the three terms of the academic year, each child has the opportunity to experience the full range of National Curriculum subjects.
