Students at Weavers study a broad and balanced curriculum that reflects the interests and aptitudes of all our students.
As a member of the Creative Education Trust, we recognise the importance and value of creative and practical opportunities to nurture positive attitudes to learning and develop the confidence, personal, social and communication skills of all our students. The curriculum also enables personal development of pupils through instilling the Academy’s core values of ‘striving for success, focusing on learning’ and ‘Learning with pride’.
The curriculum at Weavers is sequenced to enable students to develop and effectively apply subject-specific powerful knowledge, concepts and skills to the appropriate level and beyond, reflecting the academic demands at different stages of their academic career but at the same time, not limiting their ability to exceed them. Throughout their learning experience, students have opportunities to connect new and existing knowledge and themes, to enable a broader and deeper understanding of the curriculum as a whole.
At Weavers we believe in being active partners in learning with our students, placing them at the centre of everything we do; we listen to their concerns, their interests, regularly reviewing and adapting our curriculum accordingly in response.
All students access a range of activities that enhance personal development, key life skills, careers as well as placing student leadership and enrichment at the heart of the student experience. In all subjects students are taught to recognise and apply the skills and characteristics that are essential to be successful in the world of work, recognising that they are applicable to all the challenges and opportunities they will encounter both now and in the future. By doing this we aim to teach them that all students (regardless of prior experience) already possess skills and characteristics but that most importantly these can be developed and applied to a range of situations to enable them to be successful in school, in personal lives and in the world of work.
Weavers Academy ensures that we make adaptations to the curriculum so that we comply with the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. We also make the curriculum accessible for those with disabilities or special educational needs through effective quality first teaching to ensure that all students feel represented and empowered to be successful in their learning.
