Cleeve Meadow Curriculum

Curriculum Intent

We strive to ensure that our curriculum meets the holistic needs of all our students, facilitates their success and enjoyment and inspires them to become confident life-long learners who are able to fully participate in, and contribute to, society. We believe that our curriculum design should provide broad, balanced and meaningful learning experiences.

Our School Values are central to our ethos and learning culture and are embedded within our curriculum. We believe that every student should experience and develop respect for self and others. We celebrate diversity and individuality and ensure everyone has their voice heard and valued. We are committed to empowering our learners to develop confidence and autonomy, to take ownership of their own learning and control over their lives. We support our learners to be honest and reflective and encourage them to enjoy the freedom to take risks and to learn from their mistakes.  We are passionate and ambitious about learning and progress and strive to promote a culture of Aspiration, effort and resilience. We believe that our Creative Arts specialism makes a particularly strong contribution to the aesthetic and creative development of our students. We recognise that all our learners do best when they are happy and engaged in their learning.
