Curriculum Intent 2019/20

Key Stage 3 and 4

The school’s vision is modelled in our curriculum, where we believe in inclusive education for all. We believe that all of our students deserve a curriculum that meets their differing needs and enables them to fulfil their unique potential. We want our students to be successful members of our community and to maximise their life opportunities. It is the intention of our curriculum to enable this.

The curriculum intent is to create:

Resilient learners who aspire to fulfil their unique potential.
Confident individuals who are equipped with the knowledge and skills to be able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
Responsible citizens who can make a positive contribution to their community.
An inclusive environment that takes into account individual needs and strengths.
An ethos which encourages everyone to achieve and experience success.

Our curriculum principles are to:

Adapt our curriculum to meet the unique needs of all of our learners.
Stretch and challenge all learners over 5 years, taking into account different starting points.
Develop effective literacy and communication skills – therefore creating learners who are confident and competent readers, writers and speakers.
Embed a range of wider opportunities and experiences (e.g. Sport, DoE, CEIAG) for all, to ensure our learners have an educational experience that is rich and varied.
