Lace Hill Academy Curriculum
We ensure the Curriculum is exciting and engaging for all Pupils. We prioritise the teaching of English and Mathematics to give our pupils secure foundations on which to build other skills.
Our Curriculum aspires:
to develop individuals with lively, enquiring minds, good thinking skills, self-respect, self-discipline and positive attitudes;
to provide a curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical, mental and emotional development of the pupils;
to ensure children can develop as literate, numerate and technologically competent individuals, within a broad, balanced, exciting and challenging curriculum;
to provide rich and varied contexts and experiences for pupils to acquire, develop and apply a broad range of knowledge, skills and understanding;
to encourage all children to be enthusiastic and committed learners, promoting their self -esteem, self-worth and emotional well-being;
to develop children’s confidence and capacity to learn and work independently and collaboratively.
In order to further support pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching, we have set the following objectives:
● To ensure curriculum materials clearly show positive images of disabled people, of both women and men in non-stereotypical gender roles, and of people from a wide range of ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds.
● To promote a positive self-image in all children and to respect their individuality, providing for all pupils according to their need
● To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities and those of differing races, beliefs or religions, sexual orientation or gender
We aim to provide appropriate support and resources to individual pupils who may experience barriers to learning. We aim to close the attainment gaps between different groups. We aim to promote and encourage a school ethos that has respect for others at the core.
