The Learning Challenge Curriculum
Our curriculum aims ensure that all pupils experience a broad and balanced curriculum where key curriculum driver concepts are embedded into long-term memory. Children build up their Cultural Capital by gaining knowledge that is of use to them for the rest of their lives and curriculum enrichment ensures that all children are provided with a wealth of experiences. The Trust aims to develop successful learners with high aspirations who are challenged and know how to make a positive contribution to their community and the wider society. Our curriculum development is based on academic research and the cognitive science of how children learn and is designed using our teacher’s experience and knowledge to meet the needs of all our pupils.
