'Anxiety is just like the rest of life: everyone experiences it differently. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution, so if someone close to you is struggling, one of the most important things you can do is talk to them about it.' https://t.co/Z1XFdiFI95

Please please parents do not express disappointment at your offspring’s exam results. Your children are young, life is long, there are many paths, many possible changes. Disappointment is a burden that makes for unachievable goals. This can weigh people down for a lifetime.

Our Approach to the Curriculum

The table below demonstrates our approach to the curriculum. We always start with the grammar (or knowledge). We then give plenty of opportunities for pupils to practise using their knowledge; this is the dialectic. Finally, once pupils are secure in their knowledge, we ask them to communicate it in different ways; this is the rhetoric. This is the Trivium approach to curriculum.


(the knowledge- learn facts and skills)


(questioning, thinking, practising, arguing, exploring)


(communicating the knowledge- expressing and articulating)




  • Retention
  • Recall
  • Repetition
  • Low stakes testing
  • Build cultural capital
  • Debate
  • Question
  • Challenge
  • First hand experience
  • Experiment
  • Enquiry
  • Problem solving
  • Critical evaluation
  • Structured speech
  • Perform
  • Make things
  • Showcase products of learning
  • Contribute to discourse about shared valued




  • Multiple choice
  • ‘Show me’ on mini whiteboards
  • Tests of memory and recall


  • Pair/Share
  • Deeper questioning
  • Complex dialogue between teachers and pupils
  • Peer dialogue and assessment
  • Essays
  • Performances
  • Mastery teaching


As an academy, we have to make difficult choices about what to include in our curriculum and what to leave out. The English and Mathematics curricula follow the National Curriculum models. There is a rationale for teaching each unit of work in the wider curriculum. Furthermore, it should be clear how each unit of work promotes, achieves or contributes to the following:

How does this unit of work promote the following?

Curriculum Drivers: How does this unit of work support a broad and balanced curriculum?

How does this unit of work contribute to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils?

Fundamental British Values

Knowledge of the World

Spiritual development

Teaching the Prevent strategy

Enterprise and Aspiration

Moral development

Teaching pupils how to stay safe

Investigation and Enquiry

Social development

Promoting healthy living

Local, National and Global

Cultural development
