HOW HAVE WE CONSTRUCTED OUR CURRICULUM?

We started the review process for our curriculum on the research in curriculum shared by Ofsted in December 2018.

As a result, our new Curriculum is based on a Plan, Deliver & Review cycle.

In 2019/20 we structured our school calendar to effectively review our new curriculum at three points throughout the year.

Due to recent school closures as a result of Covid-19 we have continued to review our curriculum to ensure we have a robust Covid Recovery Curriculum and a strong Blended Learning Offer to ensure students can make make good progress whether they are learning on or off site. Pease see the information below for more details.
