Curriculum Overview


Curriculum Intent

Our broad and balanced curriculum is carefully designed, implemented and reviewed to ensure that our core values shine through in everything that we do. It is planned and sequenced to provide sufficient knowledge and skills that build over time to prepare our pupils for future learning. We strive for excellence on a daily basis to ensure children are responsible, resilient and ready for the next chapter in their lives. Our curriculum gives all pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.

Our curriculum is underpinned by literature and focus on developing a love of reading and oracy to create a language rich environment, so that all children, regardless of starting points, can thrive and become confident, literate individuals that can better access learning in all subjects.

Our curriculum drivers reflect the academy’s context such as our local Fairground community and the Doncaster mining and rail heritage, so that children know about and understand both the wider world and their community’s history. We want our children to develop a sense of pride in themselves and their community and show respect for others. We have also included missions from the Commando Joe curriculum  to develop in our children,  the resilience and problem-solving skills they need.
