Our students are taught in age-appropriate classes and supported to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of academy life through the pillars of ‘Love, Learn, Live, and Lead’. Effective learning requires the processes of forgetting and recall, we ensure regular opportunities to revisit and revise what has been learnt so that study is regularly refreshed and recalled. Our feedback and assessment practices monitor when the intended learning has not been fully secured by students and our teachers effectively intervene, adjusting their teaching to do things differently to help all students learn well.
We believe knowledge is powerful when remembered as it enhances our students’ understanding and application of subject-specific and transferable skills. Our curriculum prioritises strong literacy and numeracy skills as all students require these core skills to achieve. We operate a knowledge engaged curriculum approach believing subject knowledge supports and strengthens the application of subject skills.
