At Richard de Clare Community Academy we have a broad and balanced curriculum that is based around our core concepts:
Dream Big, Work Hard, Believe and Achieve
Objectives covered in our school curriculum come from the National Curriculum. The National Curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary schools. It prescribes what subjects are taught in school and the standards children should reach at the end of each Key Stage. The National Curriculum can be accessed from the link below.
Our curriculum aims to create a learning environment which also reflects the key principles of The Bridge Academy Trust alongside our individual school's vision:
ENJOY - ENRICH - ACHIEVE - ASPIRE
ENJOY - Our children will have experiences throughout their time at Richard de Clare which are enjoyable and memorable. Children who are happy have a positive attitude towards their learning and will make greater progress.
ENRICH - Our children will have access to a broad curriculum which goes beyond the classroom experience. Trips, residential visits, visitors, sports, music and academic opportunities will all enrich their primary school journey.
ACHIEVE - Our children will be recognised for their achievements both inside and outside school. We know that children who experience success will believe in themselves and will consequently thrive in all areas. We aim for every child to reach their potential and be equipped with the necessary social and academic skills to progress on to the next stage of their lives.
ASPIRE - Our children will be encouraged and supported to have high expectations for themselves. The school has a growth mindset approach to learning and teaches that through hard work and determination anything is possible.
If you would like any further information regarding the curriculum, please contact the school office or your child's class teacher in the first instance.
