Ready for Life
The Abbeymead Ready for Life Curriculum
At Abbeymead, our curriculum is focussed upon preparing our pupils to be ‘Ready for Life’. Our aim is to ensure that children leave us with the knowledge and skills, self-confidence and resilience to be happy and successful as they move on through education and into the workplace and society. We work to instil what we hope will be a life-long love of learning in all of our pupils.
Our curriculum is designed to provide a rich and deep education that specifically meets the needs of the pupils, and allows each and every one to achieve their potential. We ensure high quality learning and outcomes, the development of critical thinking skills, and the effective teaching of essential knowledge, skills and understanding; the building blocks for later life.
Our co-curriculum, The’ Ready for Life’ Award Scheme goes beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum in providing experiences outside of the classroom that further support our pupils in becoming responsible, balanced and well-informed members of society. We are grateful to our parent community for their cooperation in implementing the scheme.
Our commitment to the development of wellbeing, strong personal values, self -awareness, and emotional resilience is reflected through discrete teaching and learning opportunities across the curriculum, and through the ongoing delivery of the core and foundation subjects.
The aims of our curriculum are:
We pride ourselves in being an aspirational and reflective school; we continually strive to improve our teaching and learning in light of the latest research and as the result of ongoing monitoring, evaluation and review. Curriculum documents on our website are updated on an ongoing basis but might not always reflect the very latest changes to provision. Please contact the school if you would like to discuss our most recent work in terms of curriculum development.
