Curriculum

The curriculum at Rossington All Saints Academy

The aim at Rossington All Saints Academy is to provide a curriculum which stimulates and motivates students irrespective of their background. Our intention is to ensure pupils make outstanding progress and that the curriculum removes any potential barriers to learning. We set high expectations to ensure that every pupil excels across all aspects of academy life.

We want our pupils to leave with knowledge and skills which will not only create excellent life opportunities but will also prepare them exceptionally well for life beyond the academy.

To achieve this, we have 4 key values – Community, Aspiration, Resilience and Excellence which underpins our whole school curriculum vision.

All departments within the academy have developed their schemes of learning to reflect these four values, to ensure a consistent approach to curriculum development. Furthermore, there is a collaborative approach across departments with the intent to ensure that sequencing and cross-curricular links are embedded effectively across all subject areas.
