Equality and the Curriculum

Our curriculum reflects the attitudes, values and respect that we have for all ethnic groups that make up the diverse community of our academy. So, for example, the history curriculum gives due emphasis to ancient African traditions and cultures in the work that the children do on the Ancient Egyptians. In the religious education curriculum topics focus on religious festivals, the children study the importance of Diwali to Hindus and Vaisakhi to Sikhs. We also celebrate Eid, Diwali, Chinese New Year, Christmas, Easter and Harvest through a range of phase assemblies and topics that are researched and produced by different year groups. Teachers often celebrate other religious festivals if they have a child in their class from a particular religious background

As an academy we constantly review the curriculum and insure that it reflects the needs of our community and our children.
