Curriculum Overview 2017 – 19
Our intention at the Brookvale Groby Learning Campus is to serve the needs of all our students by providing a broad, balanced and coherent curriculum or programme of study. Our aim is to develop and nurture young people to become well educated, well-rounded individuals with the skills and characteristics to contribute fully to society.
We strive to offer a curriculum that will provide students with the opportunity to meet and exceed their academic potential as well as equipping them with a growth mindset for learning.
The curriculum is comprehensive and balanced throughout Key Stage 3 (KS3) and Key Stage 4 (KS4) but also provides the flexibility for a degree of choice at KS3/KS4 and the ability to specialise at Key Stage 5 (KS5). Embedded within the curriculum is the opportunity for students to experience and develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness as well as promoting their reading, writing, communication and maths skills. The KS3/4 curriculum is designed to be a smooth 5 year journey. It begins from the students’ starting points when they enter in Year 7 and takes them to GCSE expectations by the end of Year 11.
In all subjects at all Key Stages, students are formally assessed at least 6 times per year. This assessment data is then used by staff when reporting home to parents.
All formal assessments in Years 7-11 use the new GCSE grades on a scale of 1-9.
Work has been done in individual faculty areas on developing flight paths for monitoring progress of students against their final Year 11 target.
Final GCSE targets are produced for students based on their performance in their KS2 SATs and the National GCSE average data for similar ability students. Targets are aimed higher than the national average expected outcome and therefore are aspirational for the students.
Students in Years 12 and 13 are set their targets based on their average performance at GCSE and the National outcomes for each subject. As with KS3 and 4, these targets are then aimed slightly higher than average expected, given students an aspirational target.
