Intent, Implementation and Impact
At Carterton Community College we will offer a balanced and ambitious curriculum that is based on our shared values and which will deliver the very best outcomes for all our students. Building on the progress students have made at primary school, and mindful of their ambition and aspirations, we will deliver a sequenced and progressive academic curriculum. It will produce students who are confident in numeracy, reading and communication, so that they may flourish in their chosen careers and become confident, valued members of our community.
Founded upon high standards and high aspirations the curriculum will instil a genuine love of learning amongst our students, providing them with the knowledge and skills they will need as they prepare for life in the 21st Century. We believe that rigorous planning and resourcing, consistent implementation and appropriate assessment, will produce curious and resilient learners who are able to successfully access and progress through the curriculum.
For pupils aged between 11 to 14, we will maintain a broad curriculum with a wide range of subjects so that students may benefit from a rich learning experience. Building on the progress students have made at primary school, and mindful of their ambitions and aspirations, we will deliver a sequenced and progressive curriculum which values academic and creative subjects. For pupils aged 14 to 19, the curriculum will provide syllabus-led learning pathways, designed to maximise attainment, nurture their self-belief so they may progress to ambitious destinations.
The personal development curriculum will contribute to students’ ability to appreciate their place in a world of diverse culture, hold British values and have meaningful, enriching experiences which widen the extent of their learning. Through our STEM initiative we will work alongside a range of institutions and industry partners to integrate learning experiences and skills development into the fabric of our curriculum and produce citizens with the skills to meet the demands of the current and future workforce.
