At All Saints Academy we pride ourselves in providing motivational and exciting learning opportunities which develop a life-long love of learning.
Our broad and balanced curriculum provides pupils with engaging and creative opportunities built around the objectives set out in the National Curriculum. It allows our pupils to gain skills and knowledge and develop their talents across a wide range of subjects. The content is progressive and logically sequenced allowing pupils to build on prior knowledge and skills. Through its design, pupils know more and remember more.
Our curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of the pupils and their families within our community. We have identified four curriculum key drivers which sit at the heart of our curriculum.
- Positive mind-set
We aim to provide all of our pupils with the skills, attitudes and attributes to enable them to be world wise. Through the wider curriculum, collective worship and the ethos of the school, we aim to develop our pupils’ awareness of their own identity, the impact they can have on others and the Earth and the strength they have to make changes.
What does ‘world wise’ mean to us? diversity, knowledge of other cultures, traditions & religions, environmental understanding and British values.
We promote a culture of self-improvement at All Saints Academy. We aim to develop a positive mindset in our pupils, which will help them to succeed in their school life and beyond.
What does ‘positive mind-set’ mean to us? ‘I can’/’I will’ attitude, the power of ‘yet’, resilience, perseverance, understanding that challenge is good, coping with failure and being able to celebrate the strengths of others.
At All Saints Academy we aim to broaden the horizons of our pupils through providing a wide range of opportunities beyond their typical life experiences.
What does ‘aspirations’ mean to us? the wide range of possible future careers, new skills and discovering or learning about new places.
Language and communication are fundamental within a child’s personal, social and academic development. A key aim of our curriculum is that our pupils develop the skills to effectively communicate their thoughts, ideas and feelings.
What does ‘oracy’ mean to us? speaking, body language, listening, vocabulary, conversation and debate.
Our distinctive Christian values are embedded throughout our curriculum and can be seen explicitly through the life of the school promoting our pupils to show:
The range of experiences we offer, support and champion our school vision and aims and ensures that our children benefit from a full range of experiences. These activities enrich their lives and those of our school community and wider community.
