At George Salter Academy, all students will be taught to understand the universal human condition and experience. Students have a strong sense of identity and will be confident in expressing themselves with precision and know the value of creativity. They will read widely across cultures to help develop an understanding of the beliefs of others. They will cultivate an interest in environments beyond their own and understand the need for sustainability in all its forms.
Our seven year curriculum journey aims to build on the foundations of learning at Key Stage Two. Teachers and leaders have considered and developed Key Concepts for individual subject curricula, using the National Curriculum and Assessment Objectives across all Key Stages. Individual Subject Concepts and Curriculum pages can be found here. Curriculum Maps and Schemes of Work have been carefully developed for each key stage so that students are supported to acquire new knowledge and skills, building on prior knowledge through making connections between subject Key Concepts and the over-arching GSA Curriculum Concepts.
Subject leaders and teachers are subject specialists; students and parents can be confident that subject knowledge of staff and educational pedagogy is of the highest quality. Teachers work collaboratively with each other to make links across the curriculum so that students are able to see and independently make connections between subjects.
