Ormiston Sudbury Academy –  Curriculum Intent

In line with the Ormiston Academies Trust curriculum strategy of teach, develop and change, our curriculum intent demonstrates our commitment to:

  • A broad and balanced range of subjects; inspiring students to appreciate and interact with the world around them, encouraging independence and creativity and linking their learning from different topics, themes and disciplines.
  • Teach the key elements to support effective: literacy, language and numerical development.
  • Support students in progressing, by providing appropriate and valued opportunities to develop their aspirations.
  • Develop a variety of skills in students to support their on-going learning by cultivating resilience, teamwork, creativity as well as a passion and enjoyment for learning.
  • Develop the key skills that support students in sustaining effective personal well-being and relationships through confidence, tolerance, respect and appropriate communications.
