Curriculum Rationale and Intent

‘Be the Best you can Be’

Our Curriculum Statement

We are a Rights Respecting School with No Outsiders



Article 28: Every child has the right to an education


Our children at The Acorns benefit from an exciting and stimulating curriculum that develops pupils’ appreciation of the links between various subjects. Our tailored curriculum facilitates in making the unfamiliar and the difficult feel more purposeful to children. Every child’s education must prepare them for the world around them. They must be able to understand information which is presented to them and communicate their thoughts and feelings on this information.


Curriculum newsletters will be uploaded for each year group to inform parents of the learning taking place each term.
