Within the Focus Trust, we
encourage each academy to have a curriculum that is bespoke to their individual
context and the needs and interests of our children. However, there is an
expectation that each curriculum design is underpinned by current research and
ensures our children will be well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the
next stage of their education. Each
curriculum intent should promote the demonstration of compassion, integrity and
a pursuit of excellence in order for our children to reach their potential.
There should be an enquiry-based approach which takes children on a journey of
memorable learning through rich and purposeful experiences, culminating in
authentic outcomes which leave a legacy on the wider world. Our curricula
aim to provide inclusive and aspirational environments where learners thrive
and build the social and ‘cultural capital’ they need to make aspirational
choices about their own future, overcoming any barriers.
For more information please read our Curriculum Statement and make an appointment to visit one of our academies to see first-hand the great education our children are receiving.
