Policy & Plan
Southfields Academy has an outstanding and diverse curriculum which aspires to respond to the local and national agenda in order to ensure all our students receive a high quality learning experience at all times.
Our curriculum is the vehicle to allow our students to become:
- Confident and successful individuals who enjoy learning, make ambitious progress and achieve high quality and meaningful qualifications.
- Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society including their local community and the wider international world in which they exist.
Our conversion to academy status enabled us to ensure that the needs of our students drive our curriculum provision at all times. Whilst confirming our commitment to the broad and balanced principles of the National Curriculumm we also celebrate and use our strengths to drive excellence and innovation.
We believe wholeheartedly that in order to access a broad and balanced curriculum, all students need to be confident and proficient in the basic skills of reading, writing, communication and mathematics and these are given the highest priority at all times.
Finally, we consider it critical that equal opportunities are promoted and realised at all levels of curriculum provision and that this is integral to outstanding practice. Whilst we provide extensive individual and small group withdrawal support where necessary, our curriculum is one which celebrates inclusion at all times and we firmly believe that our diversity as a school ultimately enriches and enhances our curriculum for the benefit of all.
