The new National Curriculum will be taught in all maintained primary and secondary schools from September 2014. As an academy we have the freedom to set our own curriculum, but the National Curriculum provides the standard against which we can benchmark our own standards. Therefore we are taking this opportunity to review the school curriculum in order to provide a curriculum that best suits the needs of our children.
The National Curriculum sets out the following aims:
•To ensure that the National Curriculum embodies rigour and high standards and creates coherence in what is taught in school.
•To ensure that all children are taught the essential knowledge in the key subject disciplines.
•Beyond that core, to allow teachers greater freedom to use their professionalism and expertise to help all children realise their potential.
