Our Curriculum



Curriculum intent

At The Bramble Academy we are committed to providing a purposeful and empowering curriculum that fully prepares learners for the next steps in their school career, as well as the challenges of the wider world. A curriculum in which core literacy and numeracy skills are at the heart of all we do and in which children are engaged and excited to learn.The curriculum is designed to recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.  Our curriculum embraces the community in which it is situated, recognising local history, heritage, geographical and business links and most importantly, the aspirations of all our children. We place strong emphasis on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all our pupils and our school is part of The Evolve Trust which has identified a clear set of values that underpin everything we do.

Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We constantly provide an array of enrichment opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.
