Curriculum

Our curriculum is underpinned by a belief that everybody has the potential to succeed within a high quality and intellectually challenging educational environment.

 

We believe our curriculum must be creative, broad, rich, experiential and ambitious to enable all learners to:

  • Make informed choices to keep themselves safe, healthy and able to determine their future.
  • Benefit from a seamless journey of lifelong learning through the development of academic excellence
  • Become the best version of themselves and make a successful contribution to society.

Our curriculum is underpinned by a belief that everybody has the potential to succeed within a high quality and intellectually challenging educational environment. It reflects a commitment to instilling high aspirations, a desire to learn and an ambition to achieve.

The framework addresses all learners’ academic, personal and social development. The three individual strands provide a different component to the overall education of each learner: their intellectual, personal and social development.

The three strands are:

  1. Personal development - Make informed choices to keep themselves safe, healthy and able to determine their future
  2. Academic development - Benefit from a seamless journey of lifelong learning through the development of academic excellence.
  3. Social development - Become the best version of themselves and make a successful contribution to society

At Yewlands Academy the Curriculum has been designed to:

Foster thought, curiosity and a desire for learning in all pupils, regardless of their backgrounds, strengths and needs.

Be the key to open a gateway of opportunity for all learners and maximise the academic achievement and attainment of all learners.
Reflect National policy and priorities.

Be broad and balanced with an emphasis on academic success and knowledge acquisition.

Mold pupils into good citizens, with a sense of responsibility for their actions.

Cultivate well–rounded, intelligent and socially aware pupils and encourage pupils’ social participation within their community.

Enable all learner to develop respect for themselves, high self-esteem and the ability to live and work cooperatively with others.
