Our Curriculum Intent
Our curriculum is about bringing engagement, fun and enthusiasm to learning so that our children develop independent curiosity, acquire a lifelong appetite for learning and become well-rounded individuals who achieve their full potential, both personally and academically. Our curriculum starts from the children in our academy and works out.
Subject Centred Curriculum
Our ambitious curriculum is divided into subjects. Emphasis is placed on acquisition, recall, and knowledge of each specific subject area. This is so that our children can increase their knowledge, embed their skills and therefore deepen their understanding.
Children in Years 1-6 are taught the National Curriculum subjects. These are:
- Design and Technology
- Art and Design
- Physical Education
- Religious Education
- Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
- Relationships and Sex Education
- Foreign Languages (Years 3-6)
Children in Reception are taught through the areas of learning and development in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. This is delivered through our bespoke curriculum.
The EYFS areas of learning and development are:
- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
6 Core Principles
