Aims & Overview

In planning the curriculum for Orchards Church of England Academy we have sought to recognise that each child is an individual entitled to equal regard and opportunity. Our task is to develop the potential of each child, to provide learning opportunities where that child may take increasing responsibility for his/her learning. In this way we hope to develop the whole person. We see education as a tool that will bring learning for life.
We base our English work on Talk For Writing and our maths on Power Maths, which is a mastery scheme..
Our curriculum is organised based on the children’s interests and focuses on the key skill of learning (from the National Curriculum). This theme-based curriculum allows for more cross-curricular links between subjects as well as the progression of skills from Early Years through to KS2.
