An exciting and inspirational curriculum will be made special by providing children with a wide range of unique experiences. The Academy will deliver the National Curriculum in Years 1 to Year 6 and the Early Years Curriculum in Reception.
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS): At Concordia we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. This is a curriculum deeply rooted in the foundations of play in order to support our children to develop their social skills working harmoniously together, whilst gaining a strong foundation in English, Mathematics and creative and physical skills.
Key Stage 1 and 2: We have designed a curriculum that equips our children with the skills and personal qualities necessary to lead a fulfilling and rewarding life. We aim for our curriculum to enable our children to achieve the core life values we aspire to for them, and allow them to be active, responsible members of their community. Our curriculum is very practical, engaging all ability levels and is easily accessed by children at different stages of English language acquisition. Children work in a variety of ways: as a class, in groups, pairs or individually. Our emphasis is always on active and meaningful involvement of children in their own learning. Through this, we aim to provide meaningful and exciting learning opportunities, which ensures raised levels of achievement.
Concordia Academy is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all. We believe that every child matters and all pupils have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum integrated in to all aspects of Academy life. We ensure that pupils of all abilities have the opportunity to flourish
