Our curriculum offer seeks to follow the National Curriculum, prioritising emotional wellbeing alongside academic achievements in order to meet the individual needs of our pupils. This is exemplified by regular assessment to enable us to gauge the level of students. We will then produce work that is differentiated to promote student success in science.
Also, the curriculum is strategically planned to scaffold the skills required to make successful progress demonstrated through ensuring subject content and, working scientifically at KS3, lays the foundation for teaching at KS4.
We strive to enthuse and prepare our young people for the wider world to develop the skills imperative to our pupils’ ability to cope in the wider world and their ability to sustain employment this is incorporated through teamwork, promoting communication and literacy skills in all science lessons and science in the wider world. We also incorporate STEM experience as part of the curriculum.
A knowledge-engaged curriculum is promoted and facilitated through linking science lessons to the real world and promoting learning outdoors where possible.
