While the school is not legally obliged to follow the National Curriculum, we adhere to it, wherever appropriate for individual students and the group as a whole. We recognise the importance of keeping abreast of curriculum development and opportunities that we develop and exploit to promote and extend young people’s learning.
We recognise the importance of social, moral, spiritual and cultural (SMSC) development and highlight opportunities within each curriculum subject offered to address, explore and teach these aspects and values accordingly. Prominent in each of our classrooms are our own values, agreed and developed with young people, which set out the expectations for behaviour and conduct in the classroom.
We firmly believe and are committed to teaching of values which promote cohesiveness within our school and community. We believe that these values which traditionally underpin British society should permeate all aspects of school life and be upheld by every member of the school and wider community. We promote these values through our own school values, curriculum delivery, and the school offer and enrichment activities.
