INSPIRE - ENJOY - ACHIEVE
At Godmanchester Community Academy we endeavour to provide a varied, stimulating and comprehensive curriculum, enabling the children to become engaged with the subject through a range of mediums and activities. Each year group has a curriculum map which is broken down into half termly sections. These maps can be downloaded here, and a newsletter with more details about each subject is sent to parents every half term.
The school provides a broad curriculum which incorporates many aspects of the National Curriculum. Curriculum coverage includes all the regular subject areas: English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, R.E., P.E. Music, Art, Design Technology, Computing Modern Foreign Languages and P.S.H.E.
We are continually reviewing and improving the curriculum as we seek to make the learning experience both inspiring and exciting, while ensuring all pupils rapidly gain the basic skills in Literacy and Numeracy. We aim to provide the children with a love of learning, a determination to succeed and the motivation to be determined and successful learners.
The broad outlines of this curriculum can be found in the school’s curriculum map, subject policy documents and schemes of work. Teachers use a wide range of teaching methods which are routed in best practice and on-going research. As teaching methods continue to develop, the school will seek to incorporate new ideas and ensure continued professional development of all staff.
The school has an inclusive approach, seeking to tailor both the curriculum and teaching methods to reflect individual pupils’ needs and learning styles. More detail can be found in the schools’ ‘Teaching & Learning Policy.’
