CURRICULUM OVERVIEW AND APPROACH
At The Corbet School we aim to ensure that the needs and aspirations of all our learners are met through the delivery of a broad, balanced and comprehensive curriculum. Through this curriculum we enable all learners to reach their full potential both academically and socially focusing on knowledge, understanding, skills and the attributes to become confident and successful independent learners. Our curriculum promotes equality, high standards of behaviour and promotes students’ spiritual, moral, social, cultural development and an understanding of British values. By the time they leave us we aim to have inspired learners with the necessary skills and attitudes to lead successful, happy and fulfilling lives as flexible, agile and outward looking young people ready to meet the demands of a fast-evolving world and to take responsibility for their part in it both socially and through their relationships with others.
We follow the National Curriculum and its Programmes of Study throughout Key Stage 3 to maintain both balance and breadth in the curriculum. Our curriculum at Key Stage 4 blends both the traditional curriculum with innovations to make it both located within our rural context and appropriate to the needs of our learners. We are committed to all learners; we treat them as an individual and aim to offer them a curriculum appropriate to their needs; this area is constantly under review.
We celebrate creativity and talent through our wider curriculum where we provide enrichment opportunities in sports, music, art, performance, literacy, numeracy, outdoor education and STEM. We invest in our Careers programme to support all students to identify their best next steps post-16 and provide work experience opportunities for all students during Key Stage 4.
We are committed to the development of the basic skills; reading, writing and numeracy within the curriculum and where needed through support and intervention to ensure that all learners can access the curriculum and achieve their very best.
Our curriculum plan for each year group can be found below.
