Aims of the Curriculum

These are specifically curricular aims and form part of the overall aims of the school.

At St Augustine’s we will develop a curriculum that is flexible and relevant to the needs and interests of students of all ages and which takes account of the demands of parents/carers, employers, further and higher education, examination boards and which meets statutory requirements. The curriculum will help prepare students for an ever-changing workforce by providing the skills and pathways to achieve their future ambitions.

We aim to help our students to:

  • develop lively, imaginative and enquiring minds;

  • acquire knowledge, understanding and skills relevant to adult life in a world of rapid and continuous technological change;

  • develop good numeracy and literacy and communication skills;

  • access fully the curriculum irrespective of gender, ethnicity, belief, social or cultural background, academic ability, special need, learning difficulty or disability;

  • develop personal and moral values, respect for shared values and for other cultures, religions and ways of life;

  • develop an understanding of the world in which they live;

  • appreciate human achievements and aspirations,

  • explore their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development;

  • take their place in society as informed, confident and responsible citizens.

If Parents/Carers require further information or have any questions about our school's curriculum, please contact Mr S Ledger through the school office.
