The ‘wider curriculum’ refers to an experience of learning which goes beyond the limitations of the National Curriculum or the expectations of chief examiners. It is based on an understanding that a child’s experience of school must involve far more than the number of qualifications they have gained. Whilst this will always be the main measure under which we are held accountable, we should also hold ourselves accountable for the number of minds we have broadened, the number of friendships we have fostered, and the number of young people who leave our school equipped to face the challenges of a changing world.
From KS3 students are taught lessons around relationships and sex education. We aim to encourage and guide them to be happy, healthy and safe as well as preparing them for adult life and making a positive contribution to society.
