Curriculum and Cultural Capital

Curriculum Intent

At Aldridge School we aim to provide a curriculum which…

  • Continually reinforces the messages of the 4 Rs.
  • Encourages students to learn from their mistakes through completing Follow Up after assessments.
  • Encourages students to be responsible for their own success through regular review of learning at home, creating revision resources (RRR homework) and regular low stakes testing.
  • Is challenging for all students through ‘teaching to the top’ and scaffolding and supporting students appropriately.
  • Maintains a breadth of subjects in all key stages including arts, technology and humanities which are available to all students regardless of individual abilities and needs.
  • Prepares students for adult life, teaching them to stay safe, live independently and contribute positively to society through discretely taught Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education lessons and assemblies .
  • Enables students to live together with others through teaching about British values and helping them to understand a range of religious beliefs.
  • Enables students to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities through Flexible Fridays.
  • Prepares students for future success in education, employment or training.
