08) How will the curriculum be matched to my child’s needs? What are the academy’s approaches to differentiation and how will that help my child?

All subject teachers are responsible for planning lessons that are accessible to and differentiated for every student. In some curriculum areas (English, Maths and Science) students are grouped by levels of attainment, whilst other curriculum areas are taught in mixed attainment groups. Students are entitled to participate in all areas of the curriculum and it is the subject teacher’s role to differentiate resources and activities to ensure the student can access the learning.

At Key Stage 4, students choose from a range of courses, which help to prepare them for the next steps in their education, be that college, apprenticeships or work. Students and parents/carers are offered advice and careers guidance at the appropriate time to help make these important decisions.
