Ambitious Curriculum for All

We provide an inclusive curriculum that is coherently planned and sequenced to enable all children to thrive and be inquisitive, creative learners. Our Ambitious Curriculum for All (ACA) is designed to give pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, the knowledge they need to take advantage of opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in later life. Questioning is a key focus of our ACA, our aim is to provide children with the skills required to think more deeply about concepts taught and how they can be applied to unfamiliar contexts.

The ACA provides equality of opportunity and is planned to ensure that spoken language skills are a part of everyday learning.  Our aim is to have a rich, varied and engaging curriculum that will develop independent learning skills and resilience, a key skill for their future. We encourage and promote an appreciation of human creativity and achievement in our curriculum to inspire and motivate children.

The ACA is built on strong pedagogical principles, with every child encouraged to meet and achieve their potential. In particular, the ACA is designed to help SEND and disadvantaged pupils get the most out of their learning through positive environments where they can flourish.  It helps them acquire the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. The breadth of curriculum content allows pupils to explore through an enquiry-based curriculum where there are no limits to learning and there is a clear development of skills and knowledge.

Each subject leader has created a specific ‘intention, implementation and impact’ statement and developed a progression of skills document for all year groups.
