At Rowhill School our pupils are entitled to a broad, balanced, inclusive, relevant and learner-focussed curriculum, which will develop the young people to be life-long independent learners who are:
confident, articulate, literate, numerate, ambitious, enthusiastic, culturally and spiritually aware, hard-working young people, with the necessary skills for progression into employment, and/or further education, to be able to live safe, healthy and fulfilled lives and be responsible and active citizens, making a positive contribution to society
The curriculum aims to raise levels of achievement, attainment and participation for every young person at Rowhill School. All children at Rowhill School are expected to follow the National Curriculum. However, this will be appropriately differentiated according to age and ability.
When a child first enters Rowhill we take care to build trust and confidence in order to establish an atmosphere in which the child enjoys attending school and becomes ready to take advantage of the learning opportunities available.
Our aim is that every child will leave school able to read and be functionally literate and numerate i.e. with recognised qualifications in English or Literacy and Mathematics or Numeracy in line with their potential. We emphasise the right ‘behaviours for learning’ to enable an effective transition from school onto the next stage of education or work life.
The curriculum aims to ensure that every young person will progress into Education, Employment or Training at Post 16 having attained the best possible school outcomes for them as individuals and it gives our young people opportunities to develop and express themselves academically, physically, culturally, aesthetically, artistically, spiritually and morally.
