Wider Curriculum

The Curriculum and British Values Curriculum

Each academy within the Focus Trust uses the National Curriculum for England as the basis for planning their curriculum for pupils. This helps to ensure that all pupils receive a broad and balanced curriculum. The National Curriculum includes English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Music, Art & Design, Computing, Design & Technology, Languages, Music and Physical Education.

British Values

Each academy has designed and personalised their curriculum to ensure that it meets the distinctive needs of their pupils. The curriculum is designed to equip pupils for later life in modern Britain. As part of the curriculum, each academy actively promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Our assemblies reflect British Values themes. We use ‘Picture News’ as a topical and relevant starting point for assemblies.

Tolerance and respect

As a state funded British school, we actively promote tolerance of and respect for all people – regardless of faith, culture, lifestyle or background.

Our PSHE offer includes delivery of the ‘No Outsiders’ scheme. We have been awarded ‘The Rainbow Flag Award’ which has commended our inclusive curriculum.


Each academy is fully compliant with the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.
