Sutton Community Academy Curriculum Intent

At Sutton Community School we want all students to leave able and qualified to play their full part in an ever-changing world, through an ambitious, creative and innovative curriculum which empowers students with the skills, knowledge, and attributes to allow them to succeed with the challenges of life beyond their time at school.

All students will experience a curriculum that:

  • is ambitious and enjoyable through knowledge and skills developed from Year 7 onwards
  • is knowledge rich, ensuring access to a wide, global cultural capital – thus maximising lifetime opportunities
  • is inclusive, nurturing and tailored towards the needs of the individual
  • is focused on developing the very best oracy, literacy, numeracy and digital skills – enabling access to the widest learning and the very best careers possible to ensure we develop global citizens
  • is enriching, ensuring all experience a rich variety of cultural, artistic and sporting activities
  • is broad in terms of coverage and (at least) encompassing the breadth of the 2014 English National Curriculum
  • celebrates the uniqueness of our local area
  • develops character, personal pride and the highest moral standards
  • celebrates diversity, challenges injustice, promotes equality and encourages the creation of a better world
  • is delivered by well-qualified, forward-thinking, skilled, passionate professionals
