Ensure Broad and Balanced Knowledge of the World
A Key Aim in Our Curriculum is to Ensure Our Pupils Develop Broad and Balanced Knowledge of the World
The National Curriculum is an entitlement and we ensure all pupils access it fully and well throughout their time at our schools. We provide wide-ranging and coherent knowledge across the curriculum, to equip our pupils for success in secondary school and their adult lives. We aim to ensure a breadth of experience and knowledge that closes gaps in cultural capital between different groups of pupils. We want our pupils to learn about a broad range of possibilities in their lives, so they can aspire with purpose and ambition. Pupils need opportunity to develop lines of personal interest and expertise. We provide a broad, coherent and structured curriculum, that aims at sustained mastery for all and a greater depth of understanding, in all subjects, for those who are capable.
How We Achieve This:

The subjects are grouped below according to the way we teach them, informed by the type of content involved and the best ways for pupils to learn it.
