A strong educational vision for curriculum delivery based on high standards of attainment

From our vision our core student values are: 

  S – Supporting students to succeed 

  E – Ensuring equality of access to outstanding provision 

  N – Networking to remove barriers 

  D – Develop well rounded individuals  

  A – Achieving high aspirations for All 

  T – Trusted adults who have high quality training are available to support students. 

 Although we recognise that each school will apply these values in different ways we also have a core set of principles to guide their application:   

  • Co-production with families and professionals  
  • High aspirations for all  
  • Support to meet the individual needs and bespoke pathways through our offer  
  • The Nolan principles for public life  are embedded in our practice

The Pathway Curriculum is a curriculum that provides a broad and balanced education to prepare and develop well-rounded individuals who can go forward into their adult lives prepared for the work environment and capable of being independent and productive citizens.  There will be after school clubs and activities supporting learning and independent living. The curriculum includes Learning Outside the Classroom activities (Forest School, canoe club, scouts, horse riding, Duke of Edinburgh silver and bronze awards, residential and expeditionary learning).
