The academy aims to deliver a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum to all pupils. We work hard to ensure that work meets the individual child’s needs.
All curricular areas are taught in accordance with the updated National Curriculum requirements. The core subjects are English, Maths and Science and these are taught in conjunction with Design and Technology (D&T), Art, Music, Physical Education (P.E.), Geography and History. Religious Education (R.E.) is also taught on a weekly basis, and Information Technology (I.T.) is taught across all areas of the curriculum.
The academy uses a variety of teaching methods including whole class, paired work, individual and group work to ensure that children get the most from their lessons. From Year 3 children work in targeted groups for Numeracy and we are moving towards a class based organisation for all other subjects.
Teachers quickly identify exceptionally bright children and every effort is made to encourage these children to develop their potential.
In addition to encouraging success in academic areas, we also endeavour through the curriculum to encourage children to be members of society by raising their awareness of such issues as citizenship, health and safety, the environment, personal and social education and economic and industrial understanding. Through teaching and example, we hope to pass on to each child the attitudes and values which will help them to be part of a helpful and caring society.
