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.

 

KS4 Subjects

 

As well as English and Maths core subjects our students also have the opportunity to study a range of other KS4 subject to give them a wide curriculum offer. 

 

History

The GCSE in History B inspires students’ enthusiasm for history. They develop their understanding of the present by studying significant periods and themes from the past at a local, national and global level, engaging with a range of contemporary sources and later interpretations. They will develop their understanding of continuity and change as well as examining how the past affects contemporary society.

 

Creative iMedia

The Cambridge Nationals in Creative iMedia will equip learners with a range of creative media skills and provide opportunities to develop, in context, desirable, transferable skills such as research, planning, and review, working with others and communicating creative concepts effectively. Through the use of these skills, learners will ultimately be creating fit-for-purpose creative media products. The Cambridge Nationals in Creative iMedia will also challenge all learners, including high attaining learners, by introducing them to demanding material and techniques; encouraging independence and creativity and providing tasks that engage with the most taxing aspects of the National Curriculum.

 

Travel and Tourism

Travel and tourism is one of the UK’s largest sectors, currently employing over 2.5 million people.


Have you ever thought about how many different types of tourism there are, and
how important the travel and tourism sector is to the UK economy?

Or about the
industries within the sector, their varied roles, and how they work together?

Have you considered how technology is changing the way tourists and travellers engage
with the sector and its organisations?

 

For students aspiring to work in the Travel and Tourism sector, or indeed any sector that involves working with people, this award will give students the tools to consider customer care, sustainable travel and even allows them to apply their knowledge to devise their own routes and visits across a range of countries. Suffolk is heavily reliant on tourism to boost the economy, and by studying Travel and Tourism, students will gain an understanding of the importance of the industry on their doorstep

Outdoor Learning

 

Once a week our students have the opportunity to explore the outdoors in their very own woodland that is owned by the Woodland Trust.

 

Throughout the year students may also visit other providers such as: - 

RSPB Minsmere

Ringsfield Hall

Whitlingham Country Park

Fritton Outdoor Centre

Hundred River Farm

Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve

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.
