Curriculum

Abbotsweld NET Curriculum

At Abbotsweld we use the national curriculum as a minimum. The curriculum we have written from this is devised to prepare pupils to be ‘life ready’ as a ‘global citizen’ but what does this mean?

Academic Success

Our rich knowledge based curriculum means that pupils gain essential knowledge and have the opportunity to be experts in every subject.

Knowledge to be taught each term is shared with pupils and parents at the beginning of the term through a Factfile. This knowledge can be ‘quizzed’ multiple times in a low pressure, high expectation environment to maximise progress.

Expertise is developed through skills- pupils will understand what it means to be a geographer, historian, scientist, writer, mathematician etc... and work on this throughout their time at Abbotsweld.
