Inspire Academy – Curriculum overview 2021-22

Inspire Academy has a broad and balanced curriculum and with consultation with staff and pupils we have made some changes to incorporate additional areas of the curriculum that we feel would benefit our pupils even further moving forward. We have also considered what would engage pupils in their learning, their likes and interests and through consultation with them and staff we have made particular changes. These are the introduction of Science for years 7 to 9, discreet RSE and personal development lessons and introducing ICT into key stage 3 to ensure that it is taught across the school.

Our curriculum has been adapted to support pupils for education recovery by introducing RSE lessons for years 7-10 and personal development lessons for years 7-10. By introducing these lessons we are able to support pupils with their development of relationships understanding and skills. This is an area that pupils have found challenging due to lockdown and is particularly pertinent for many of our pupils. By introducing personal development lessons for years 7-10 pupils are given more opportunities to work together on specific tasks that will engage their interests but also support improving team working and relationships. By giving pupils additional cultural experiences they will have a deeper understanding of the wider world and will be given the opportunity to do things that they may not have the chance to do within more academic subjects.
