Our Approach to Learning

Every school or academy must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the academy and of society, and prepares pupils at the academy for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
The curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that each academy plans for its pupils. 
Academies in England are not legally required to follow the statutory national curriculum which sets out in programmes of study, on the basis of key stages, subject content for those subjects that should be taught to all pupils. In our academy, we teach all National Curriculum subjects. All academies must publish their curriculum by subject and academic year online.
All state schools and academies are also required to make provision for a daily act of collective worship and must teach religious education to pupils at every key stage and sex and relationship education to pupils in secondary education.
All schools and academies should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice. Academies are also free to include other subjects or topics of their choice in planning and designing their own programme of education.

Our curriculum aim is for all children to believe that they can change the world for the better. We want them to be aspirational and to strive to make their world - and that of others - a better place. We want them to achieve self-efficacy. 

Within our curriculum, there are three golden threads, which permeate the work we complete. These are: Metacognition, Critical Thinking and Oracy. 
These golden threads determine how we teach, as well as influencing the way in which children learn.
