The Priory Witham Academy Curriculum Ambition

At The Witham Academy we improve our pupils life chances so that they become true citizens of the world.

We recognise the contextual barriers which can prevent some of our learners from becoming true citizens of the world; language and communication skills, exposure to the world beyond their context resulting in limited vision for the future and low self-confidence preventing our pupils from aiming high. 

The Priory Witham Academy believes in equity of opportunity and provision for all learners.  To address these barriers we deliver a curriculum that has oracy, literacy and knowledge at its heart, is underpinned by our Academy Values which empower our learners to develop their moral purpose, and equips them with the personal knowledge and experience to become informed, confident members of our wider community.

Therefore the drivers which shape our curriculum to respond to the needs of our particular community are:

  • Possibilities       encourages ambition, provides opportunities and pupils build aspirations for future lives.
  • Community        widens reach, pupils become a member of and impact on our Academy, the locality, our country and the world.
  • Wellbeing           recognises support, pupils develop self-confidence and self esteem

The Witham Academy Intent Framework:

The breadth of our curriculum is underpinned by our Academy values of:

Courage, Curiosity, Generosity, Passion and Wisdom.
