Curriculum Intent

Our ‘ultimate goals’ will drive our curriculum.

Knowledge will be at the heart of our curriculum.

Our aim will be for curriculum content to be remembered in the long term. We intend for students to make progress by remembering more and knowing more.

When planning and designing the curriculum, we will consider the following main areas:

  • How will our curriculum design provide students with opportunities for knowing and remembering deep knowledge?
  • How can we provide breadth of knowledge within subjects, sequencing topics to develop deep knowledge over time, across key stages from Early Years to KS2?
  • Does our curriculum design provide opportunities for all pupils, including those with SEND, to access a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum?
  • What end points should our curriculum build towards and what do our pupils need to know to be able to reach those end points?
  • What are the main features of the academy’s local context which we need to address to narrow gaps in our pupils’ knowledge and skills?
  • What else can we offer, alongside daily classroom practice, to ensure our pupils are fully prepared for secondary education; have knowledge of the wider world and aspire to fulfil their ambitions?
