 Our Curriculum

 

We aim to provide an excellent education for our children, which develops the highest possible standards.  We have an INSPIRE curriculum written by the academy. Everything your child does in our academy is part of this curriculum.  The total learning experience is designed to maximise achievement within the National Curriculum and develop skills, attitudes and attainment in the widest sense.

 

The National Curriculum

The National Curriculum requires that children will be taught the following subjects:

Core Subjects                         

Maths

At Alt, we aim to create mathematicians who are fluent in all areas of Maths and can use this deep understanding and fluency to reason and solve problems.

We base our learning on the 'White Rose' scheme of work which is front loaded with number to improve fluency.  We believe that all students, when introduced to a key new concept, should have the opportunity to build competency by developing a progressive concrete-pictorial-abstract

We encourage our pupils to look for patterns and make connections in their study of mathematics and give our students the opportunity to use structured models such as ‘bar modelling’ and ‘maths talk’ which supports them to visualize worded problems.  We encourage our pupils to use the correct mathematical language to explain their reasoning of problems.

Developing our skills and understanding in the teaching, learning and assessment of Maths are a key priority in our School Improvement Plan.

English, Science, Computing and R.E.

Foundation subjects               

History, Geography, Technology, Art, Music,  Physical Education, P.S.H.E. (Personal, Social and Health Education), MFL (modern foreign languages).

We teach each of the National Curriculum subjects through a topic or theme. The themes reflect the children's interests and aim to inspire the children to learn. 

Computing

Children have access to a range of technology such as laptops, iPads used in classrooms or by working in the Computer Suite. Our children are taught computing skills in a structured and progressive way.
