Curriculum Overview

Aims of the Curriculum

The aim of the curriculum is to focus on both the qualities and skills learners need to succeed in school and beyond. The curriculum should enable students to become:

  • successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society

Purpose of the Curriculum

The school is committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum that:

  • provides the core knowledge, understanding and skills to enable pupils to build upon Key Stage 2 and to support progression to the next stage of their learning once they leave the school
  • prepares learners at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life
  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of learners at the school and within society

The curriculum is organised within 50 periods per timetable cycle of two weeks. Each period is of 60 minutes duration.
