PLEASE RETWEET: with 36,000 families at our schools in London and Essex, we want to supply food parcels for those in need (on top of free school meals which we’re already doing). We’ll fully fund this but URGENTLY need a supermarket chain to help.

Thanks for letting us know, we’ll let the year head know who can investigate further. If you do experience any issues they are your first port of call.

We’ll keep parents fully up to date prior to further live lessons being delivered.

Thank you to the teachers and staff in schools across the country this morning - you are part of our vital front line in the fight against coronavirus. Help schools to focus on the children who need a place most, and keep your kids at home if you can. https://t.co/Zp4lHO7gSH

We don’t know when the school will re-open to all students. We have to wait for the government to make that decision. We will open to the children of Key Workers on Monday if that applies to you, please let us know.

Curriculum Overview

We believe that providing a broad, rich and deep range of learning experiences is essential for the development of the young people who study with us. A well-planned, personalised curriculum, delivered through excellent teaching, will provide our students the opportunities to Excel, Exceed and Explore in response to the challenges of a rapidly developing world.


Scope

We define the curriculum as:

  • the intent behind the plans for teaching and learning
  • the body of knowledge and understanding which we wish for students to develop
  • the learning skills and approaches which we wish for students to develop
  • the wider curriculum, including enrichment and extra-curricular activities facilitated by school.

Beliefs and ethos

We believe that a well-designed curriculum is essential for tackling educational disadvantage. Our rationale is founded on the following ten principles.

  • The curriculum must assist all students in securing high-quality qualifications that will best prepare them for their future education, employment and training.
  • All students must study a personalised curriculum which is wide-ranging, balanced and rigorous.
  • The curriculum must be designed around effective understanding of the transition from primary to secondary education and the subsequent transition into further and higher education.
  • The curriculum must be engaging; learning is fun and it must be rewarding for all.
  • The foundation of all learning is knowledge, so we plan and deliver a knowledge-rich curriculum.
  • Learning is ‘sticky’ and generative; the more students learn, the more they can learn in the future.
  • Core skills are to be mastered within and across all subjects, so the development of skills is also a keen focus of our planning.
  • Enrichment, both within the curriculum and beyond, is essential in bringing learning to life, and so must be explicitly planned.
  • Employability and preparedness for work must be incorporated into curriculum planning.
  • The curriculum must help students to develop spiritually, morally, culturally and socially.

For further details or to discuss any element of the curriculum please contact r.tannahill@harrischaffordhundred.org.uk or call 01375 484580.
