At Barnwell Academy we offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced, promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, social and physical development of children and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
The school delivers the DFE statutory 2014 National Curriculum which teaches the core subjects of English, mathematics and science and the foundation subjects computing, P.E, history, geography, art, design and technology, music , R.E and Spanish (MFL).
Our curriculum is enhanced with the teaching and learning of personal, social, health and economic education.
At Barnwell Academy we want children to achieve the highest possible standards in reading, writing and mathematics and the national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which our teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills.
We do, however, believe it is equally as important that they have a full entitlement to enjoy learning in other subject areas and we also put a great deal of emphasis on spoken communication and developing listening skills. To ensure that each subject area is developed and enhanced each teacher has a subject specialism and leads a subject, monitoring how it is taught, how well children are progressing in the subject throughout the school and what actions the school needs to take to improve the teaching and learning that children receive.
