John Flamsteed School Curriculum Statement
At John Flamsteed Community School, students thrive in the inclusive and aspirational curriculum we offer, where learning time is seen as precious and an entitlement for all. Teaching staff are heavily invested in their curriculum and they use their subject passion to create vibrant and engaging lessons. Our curriculum offer is broad, balanced and academically rigorous.
We strongly believe that our students have the right to access the best that has been said and thought. As such our students can expect to be exposed to authors from the traditional canon of English Literature, world renowned scientists and inspirational mathematicians from the outset in Year 7. The many cultures from all around the world are weaved into the lessons ensuring that students are knowledgeable about the world around them, enabling them to have all the tools they need to transform it in the future.
Our main aim is to enable every child to achieve or surpass their academic and social potential. We aim for a high quality of education for all students; underpinned by a strong programme of pastoral support, personal development and enrichment opportunities. We achieve this by working in partnership with the whole community and focusing relentlessly on our strategic priorities.
The first of these strategic priorities is to “design a broad curriculum which gives all students access to the knowledge and skills that they need to take advantage of the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in preparation for further study and later life”.
The intent and implementation of our curriculum are set out below and underpin the work of all leaders and teachers across the school in designing our curriculum.
