The Flying High Academy Curriculum statement 2016-17
Our school aims to provide: a rich, supportive and stimulating environment and an atmosphere of mutual respect, in which each child entrusted to our care, can reach their full potential by developing a love of learning and a desire to succeed.
Following its introduction in September 2014, The Flying High Academy Ladybrook follows the new National Curriculum. We have invested a great deal of time and energy to ensure that our new curriculum is unique to The Flying High Academy Ladybrook in that it is specifically tailored towards the needs and interests of the children.
Through the curriculum, we aim to prepare pupils for the opportunities, experiences and responsibilities of adult life and to lay a firm foundation for future learning. We seek to provide a broad, balanced differentiated curriculum and offer a wide range of exciting, challenging activities and experiences to all pupils irrespective of ability, background, ethnic origin or gender.
We acknowledge that people learn in many different ways and we recognise the need to develop strategies that allow all children to learn in ways that suit them. Opportunities are planned to cater for a range of different learning styles to ensure that all children can access the curriculum and learn in a way that is best for them.
You can find termly information about what each class is covering on the individual class pages.
In addition to English and Mathematics, children are taught to develop their skills, understanding and creativity in Science, Computing, History, Geography, Design Technology, Music, Art, Physical Education and Religious Education (which is based on the locally agreed syllabus). Additionally, French is taught from Year 3 onwards.
PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education) forms an integral part of the curriculum at The Flying High Academy Ladybrook. It helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens, whilst promoting British values.
