Our Curriculum Mission:
Our curriculum is designed to give the children of our community the best educational experience possible. We want our students to be Made in Morton but ready to take their place in the world.
Our curriculum is driven by our core values:
Our curriculum is designed as a progression model where students layer their knowledge and skills on secure foundations. Our teaching is adapted to ensure that prior learning is revisited so students can access retained knowledge effectively to support new learning. We actively encourage our staff to rethink the curriculum based on assessment or evidence from others. We have a broad and balanced curriculum which is supported by our Education with Character programme.
Our Curriculum is:
Key Stage 3 is organised into Bands/Sets defined by ability based on KS2 performance initially and thereafter rates of progress in Core Subjects. A mixture of Linear and Subject Blocking is used to timetable subjects as effectively as possible.
Curriculum Coverage KS3 (number of 100 minute lessons per fornight)
Students pick their KS4 Options in Year 9. The strategy is based on a Guided Options principle ensuring all students are well informed about curriculum choices based on prior academic performance, teacher information and relative performance of previous year groups. The Academy offers 3 Options to students to maximise curriculum time with 4 x 100 minute lessons each, per fortnight.
Curriculum Coverage KS4 (number of 100 minute lessons per fortnight)
Key Stage 4 is organised slightly differently, taking advantage of the use of Linear Blocking to create more Subject blocking in Core Subjects. This allows for more appropriate setting and intervention strategies to occur.
