Our curriculum is designed with three goals in mind:
- To provide a carefully structured and knowledge-rich academic curriculum which is built around helping pupils to access wide ranging knowledge stored in their long term memory. We build our curriculum around powerful and culturally useful knowledge which changes pupils’ perceptions and their understanding, as well as developing their values. We will ensure that pupils develop frameworks for gaining new knowledge which is embedded and retrieved easily, so that they can progress to expert outcomes and deepen their understanding.
- To give pupils appropriate experiences to develop as caring, thoughtful and, responsible citizens by teaching and upholding the values of the Christian faith.
- To provide a rich ‘cultural capital’ in the knowledge of the world which prepares pupils for life in modern Britain. Through this, we develop the breadth of pupils’’ vocabulary so that they can express themselves maturely.
