Core Values

Character, Resilience and Aspiration.

Our curriculum provides students with the knowledge, skills, and experiences to develop their character and resilience. Our curriculum enables our students to realise their varied and ambitious aspirations.

Our curriculum ensures that we are ‘Enriching Lives’ for all our students throughout their journey from Year 7, to adults who contribute positively within our rich and diverse society.

Our curriculum is planned with the intention of enabling the best outcomes for all students no matter their starting points or barriers to learning. We pride ourselves on our broad, balanced, inclusive, and representative curriculum.

Our curriculum vision is modelled in the Calculations Faculty where we believe in an inclusive education for all.

Our curriculum intent is:  

  • Coherently plan, sequence and adapt our curriculum to meet the unique needs of all of our learners.
  • Offer breadth of study at Key Stage 5
  • In Statistics, you will make links with other subjects such as English, Maths, Psychology and Science.  Students will develop effective literacy and numeracy skills through digital technology. This creates learners who are confident and competent readers, writers and speakers, with essential analytical skills needed for life. 
  • Embed a range of wider enrichment opportunities and experiences, at least one per year, to ensure our learners have an educational experience that is rich and varied.
  • Encompass the whole school core values to maximise the impact of the curriculum.
  • Students in statistics will learn how to perform rigorous tests and interpret the results. On top of this, students will have to develop the necessary communication skills to analyse and explain the results of tests they perform. 
  • To foster an expectation of independent study and using metacognition to work on areas of study that assessments have identified to be a weakness. Therefore giving students lifelong long skills that they will be able to use in their working life or next stage of study. 


As a result the Statistics curriculum will: 

  • Enable students to discover and develop other skills such as research skills, writing skills, collaboration and problem-solving skills whilst building self-confidence to support them in all aspects of life.
  • Students will learn a variety of statistical tests that are carried out in a wide range of cross-curricular subjects. However as a result of studying the Statistics curriculum students will have a thorough grounding in the concepts to analyse effectively
  • Students will be able to assess reports they read for sense and reason grounding their argument in sound statistical reasoning
  • Students will develop their character, including resilience, confidence and independence, so that they contribute positively to the life of the school, their local community and the wider environment.
  • Students can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and preserving in seeking solutions.
