Learning & Teaching
The Curriculum Overview
Our curriculum is holistic to provide the full range of learning and development needed for each of our students to be successful throughout life. Each of our provisions tailors their curriculum to match the needs of the current cohort so we are highly committed as a Group to being innovation, solutions-focused and proactive to mould a curriculum for the specific needs of each child. We create opportunities to track progress across the three areas of our curriculum design: safeguarding; wellbeing and academic progress.
Our focus is tailored across the KS3, Year 10 and Mixed Year 10/Year 11 GCSE classes providing for all our students. This will always include the key priorities of English; Maths; Science and SMSC. Our curriculum aims to promote confidence, transferrable skills for success lifelong and includes growth mindset principles to empower our young people to thrive and set themselves aspirational goals. Achievement and progress are fundamental as well as developing active leadership skills to enable our young people to make a positive difference to the Waltham Forest and beyond.
Our students at KS4 are typically very successful in a range of GCSE's including the core subjects. We also offer B-Tech qualifications, Functional Skills and where we can accommodate we support the pupils through options that may have been started in their mainstream school. We review our curriculum on a regular basis to ensure it meets the needs of our changing cohort and include Arts Awards, Sports and a choice of vocational Unit Awards to support progress in employability areas.
