“Together, we take strides towards a brighter future”

Our curriculum at the academy Learning academy partnership

Our Intent

Our children will blossom through experiencing a knowledge-rich curriculum which is both broad and balanced and fosters a love of learning, enabling all children to make connections.

We have chosen to follow the National Curriculum and the breadth of our curriculum ensures that there are no limits to learning and our pupils are encouraged to embrace every learning opportunity that is presented to them.

Our curriculum is the beating heart of our academies and is rooted in John 10:10

"I came that they might have life and live it to the full."

Our children will flourish through experiencing a knowledge-rich curriculum which is both broad and balanced and fosters a love of learning, enabling all children to make connections and be well prepared for the next stage of their education.

 

 

Our school's curriculum

At Ellacombe C of E Academy, underpinned by our Trust vision rooted in John 10:10, we are driven by our own Christain Vision “Together, we take strides towards a brighter future”. This structures everything we do, with our curriculum providing our pupils with the knowledge and skills to not only succeed but flourish throughout their lives.

We have shaped our curriculum to meet the needs of our Ellacombe school community with particular attention given to: 

-The needs of our children to have broad horizons (our bright future) and understand connections across their learning in school and wider experiences.

-The needs of our pupils to understand the impact that their actions have, on themselves, others, and the wider world (our footprints) so they both understand the opportunities that they have as well as the responsibility for making wise choices.

-The needs of our pupils to understand and celebrate difference and diversity in our world (to reflect the Christain belief that we are all ‘God’s children unique but equally special’).

-Enabling our pupils to feel proud of our incredible historic and distinct local area of Torbay within Devon (our footprints can take us to new places). 

-The understanding that children each have their own unique journey (our footprints are shaped differently and our journeys can be different)  and that we do all we can to support and nurture children as their journey through their primary years.
