- John 10:10

Curriculum Statement

The curriculum aims to provide students with a rich and broad experience, that ensures they are ready to be successful in their next step, whether that be education, training or employment. All students receive a minimum of thirty-two and a half hours of face-to-face education every week. This has resulted in GCSE examination performances that have been in line with the national average for all secondary schools.

Our Academy has a higher than national average proportion of SEND students, lower than the national average prior attainment at Key Stage 2 and one of the highest levels of socio-economic disadvantage in Gloucestershire (30% of students receive Pupil Premium funding). All Saints’ Academy has been placed in the top 20% of schools nationally in The Fairer Secondary School League Table.  We have consistently been one of the best GCSE-performing state secondary schools in Cheltenham.

Our Curriculum Intent

Broad: We provide a full breadth of National Curriculum entitlement for all students in Key Stage 3. In Key Stages 4 and 5, we provide the full English Baccalaureate opportunity for all, complemented by a variety of subjects to facilitate student passions and higher education and career destinations.

Enriched: We plan opportunities to enrich the curriculum within subjects with trips and tasks to enhance learning application. Beyond the subject curricula, we provide an enrichment programme open to all students during and after the school day.

Adapted: Knowledge of our students is used to adapt teaching to meet their learning needs.

Challenging:  Appropriate challenge is planned to engage and motivate students and build on previous learning.

Literacy: Reading and comprehension are prioritised with a programme for all and specific interventions to help students read at age-appropriate levels.

Christian Values: We teach, demonstrate and celebrate our core Christian values of Love, Peace, Respect, Reconciliation, Service and Justice explicitly every day.

British Values: We recognise the importance of the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance, taught through our Life Programme.
