The Academy aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils so that they can fully develop their talents. We place a strong emphasis on the core subjects of English, Maths and Science. At the same time we recognise that every child should be given the opportunity to explore their interest in the wide range of subjects that we can offer them at Lawn Manor. We believe every child can be successful and achieve given the right opportunities; we believe that our curriculum provides these opportunities and as a consequence pupils at Lawn Manor make good progress and leave us with the knowledge and skills that enable them to be successful in their adult lives.
Our Academy offers an environment where success at Primary is developed by high quality teaching that ensures all pupils are both supported and challenged in the class room. We focus on the building blocks of learning in the core subjects and we pride ourselves on identifying areas of need and providing top quality interventions where necessary in order to ensure timely support for the best progress. These interventions take place not only during the school day but before and after. We ask that students see obstacles as challenges to be overcome and find the necessary strength in themselves (with our help) to rise to new and more difficult challenges.
There is a strong focus on key literacy and numeracy skills throughout the Academy in all subjects not just Maths and English. We believe good literacy and numeracy skills are at the heart of all good learning so we ensure that opportunities to develop these skills are in the whole curriculum from year 7 to 11.
Our curriculum is organised as a one week timetable of 25 one hour lessons. Key Stage 3 takes place in Years 7 and 8 with pupils choosing their options towards the end of year 8. Key Stage 4 starts in year 9 with pupils studying their GCSE subjects over three years giving the pupils an opportunity to study the subject in greater depth and achieve a higher grade.
The academy is organised into 7 faculties, each led by a Director of Faculty. Full details of the topics covered in each subject area are available in the subject pages.
We believe that our curriculum can inspire and create a great future for all students who study at Lawn Manor.
