We recognise that we have the privilege of opening up to the student such an amazing world in all its diversity and complexity and we believe that learning should be an enjoyable, lifelong process, encouraging everyone to achieve their potential. We will challenge and support our pupils to do their best by providing an extensive range of learning experiences.

The Head teacher will ensure that:

·        Every element of the curriculum that the school chooses to offer has aims and objectives that reflect the aims of the school and plans indicate how the needs of individual pupils will be met. This will include how the subject will be taught and assessed, the use of language (reading, writing speaking and listening) and the use of ICT.

·        The amount of time provided for teaching the curriculum is adequate and is reviewed regularly by the SMT.

Arrangements for the monitoring and evaluation of the curriculum

The annual review will consider whether an appropriate amount of time is allocated to each curriculum area. The decision will be informed by feedback from Head/SMT and the progress and attainment of pupils in different curriculum areas.

Recommendations for change:

·        Any recommendations for change will be made to the governing body within the overall report on the curriculum.

·        When changes are made, feedback will normally be sought from pupils, staff and parents.

·        Where appropriate, individual or group arrangements are made by permanent or temporary variation from the standard school curriculum.

·        That the procedures for assessment meet all legal requirements, and pupils and parents/carers receive information to show how pupils are progressing and what may be required to help them improve.

·        The governing body is involved in the decision-making processes that relate to the breadth and balance of the curriculum.

·        The governing body is advised on any statutory changes in order to make informed decisions appropriate to Trinity School.
