The Curriculum at Applecroft School:
At Applecroft School we believe passionately in a curriculum that meets the needs of our community. Our curriculum consciously blends skills, knowledge and values and we believe that each of these aspects holds a significant place in our school.
Our values led approach underpins the way we learn and the way we treat one another. Pupils leave our school as confident young people with a strong knowledge base, a range of life skills and know what it means to be a ‘moral’ citizen and how to voice their thoughts, feelings and beliefs respectfully.
Our curriculum is carefully crafted to ensure all children have access to a broad and balanced experience through curriculum lessons, enrichment activities including the ‘Applecroft Adventure’ and extra-curricular learning. We strive for children to recognise how the knowledge, skills and experience gained through our curriculum prepares them for adult life and to identify individuals within each curriculum area that have excelled and made a positive difference in the world.
We aim to remove any limiting factor in each child’s circumstances or their belief to what they can achieve and what is possible whilst instilling the reality that great things are achieved with hard work, determination and resilience.
