A school should be characterised by a broad range and exciting curriculum that develops students’ knowledge, skills and talents supporting them to become reflective, problem solving independent learners. In order for a school to ensure that students make maximum progress and are prepared for higher education and lifelong learning all school students should experience a balance and range of school subjects.
Responding to a school aims the curriculum should:
Produce students who understand the value of knowledge, skills and worldwide citizenship within a school and global perspective.
Provide a holistic education in which the different elements of curricular provision facilities, resources, teaching, and learning content are purposefully linked to provide an education responsive to the uniqueness and special potential of each child.
Provide a broad, balanced and enriched school curriculum encompassing the taught curriculum, the enrichment offered in the school extended curricular programme, and the informal school curriculum.
Help students to become knowledgeable, confident and active learners with a desire to explore and solve problems in innovative ways throughout the school day.
Encourage students to make well informed decisions about the significant influences on their lives and, where appropriate, the lives of others, especially in relation to values, beliefs and customs at the school and wider community.
A school is a place of learning at each stage from preschool, primary school, middle school and secondary school. At each school stage student should experience life changing challenges, enhanced learning and helped to achieve in their school work and as a valued person.
