All pupils follow the national curriculum at a level and pace suitable for their ability. Find out more about the curriculum at the Academy by clicking the link on the navigation menu.

The school’s main focus is quality first teaching (QFT) where differentiation in lessons allows the individual needs of all students to be met. Where a student’s individual need requires further support, the Academy can provide an individualised timetable as well as withdrawal work.

  • Timetabled ‘moving up’ lessons in literacy and numeracy.
  • ‘202020’ literacy and numeracy support.
  • ‘LINK’ literacy and numeracy support.
  • Academy reading champions (ARC).
  • Better reading partnership (BRP).
  • Hi-5 activities in sept.
  • The appropriate use of rewards and sanctions.
  • A broad range of extra-curricular activities, including homework club and use of the learning resource centre (LRC) and learning support unit (LSU).
  • Assessment procedures that emphasise pupils’ strengths and achievements.
  • Key stage 4 courses which are relevant to pupils’ needs.
  • Exam concessions where needed.
