At The Witham Academy our curriculum aims to improve our pupils life chances so that they become true citizens of the world. All pupils are at the heart of a curriculum which is purposeful, coherent and driven by our Academy values. Pupils build confidence, enrich their vocabulary, acquire knowledge, develop skills and strive for excellence. The curriculum ignites imagination, inspires creativity and excites pupils to be passionate about learning. It provides opportunities for pupils to express their opinions about their learning, build and sustain a range of positive relationships and understand their impact on the world. This prepares them effectively for the challenges and responsibilities of the next step in their journey.
The curriculum offer is underpinned by the Witham Values Programme and characterised by a consistent approach to teaching, learning and assessment. We recognise the importance of a powerful learning model which includes the securing of a strong foundation of knowledge, identification and development of skills to apply knowledge, and application of knowledge and skills to context.
