Introduction to the St Andrew's Curriculum
Here at St Andrew's Academy, we offer a sequential, subject-based curriculum, through which the development of skills for learning and life are an integral part. Our school motto is:
'Learning Together, Achieving Together'
The curriculum provides a wide range of subjects, is ambitious, and promotes high levels of achievement. Our curriculum is also constantly evolving, responding to new needs, experiences and opportunities over time.
Each student follows a bespoke learning journey according to their developmental stage of learning, rather than their chronological age. EHCP targets for our students are skillfully integrated and taught throughout the day.
Throughout our curriculum, we aim to continue to build on each student's prior knowledge and understanding, as well as raising aspirations and confidence. We are ambitious for our young people and want them to achieve the highest possible degree of personal independence. We believe in preparing all of our students for a smooth transition into life after school, where we want them to live purposeful, fulfilling lives and be active participants in, and contributors to society.
Our curriculum is broad, balanced, compliant, and age-appropriate. This includes the teaching of Religious Education, Relationships and Sex Education, Work-Related Learning, and Careers Education information, Advice and Guidance.
