Curriculum

The Everitt Academy will support each young person’s individual learning needs with a flexible and broad curriculum that meets national standards. There will be personalised academic and therapeutic programmes and the Academy will deliver an education that:

 

  • meets individual requirements, based on assessed needs
  • prioritises academic attainment
  • has a specific emphasis on behaviour interventions and therapeutic support
  • provides multiple progression pathways.

 

The academy team will include qualified teaching and learning support staff and advocates who will work with other specialists such as clinical psychologists and counsellors. Together they will work not only with the young people, but their families and agencies too.

 

Compulsory subjects are Maths, English, Science, Information and Communications Technology, Personal Social and Health Education, Physical Education, Religious Education. Students will also have the opportunity to study additional vocational subjects depending on interest and ability. These may include Art, Food Technology, Design Technology and Enterprise.

Primary Project based Curriculum 

 

Our year 5 and 6 students have been accessing the curriculum through an immersive approach this term. Whilst following and assessing by the National Curriculum, our new Project based Curriculum is influenced by that of High Tech High and EL Education (Expeditionary Learning). Our children spend time immersing themselves within the chosen area of study, be that through: school trips, communicating with visitors, working with the community or using literature and technology on school site. The aim of this approach is to enable a sense of purpose for learning, whilst improving an understanding of the positive impact this can have within our community.
