Our curriculum intent and vision is underpinned by our Trust values and mission
Strength through Diversity
Ambition through Challenge
Excellence through Curiosity
At Summit our overarching curriculum aims to:
Promote social justice through the provision of a rich and relevant cultural capital curriculum that supports students’ learning in a wide range of subjects
Provoke ambition in our students by challenging them to engage with hard concepts
Inspire students to enjoy reflective and dynamic learning
Support our students to overcome disadvantage by equipping them with the deep knowledge and complex skills they will need to succeed in future education, work and life
Spark curiosity and excitement in students about the world, themselves and each other
Deliver coherence within and across subject areas so that students understand, learn how to remember, and make connections between the composite parts of the knowledge they are taught
Engender tolerance, optimism and hope in our students, to empower them to create a better world
Our academies will have additional, individual curriculum intent according to their ethos and context.
Our academies will map their curricula within and across subject areas, mindful of the foundations of the primary curriculum, and the future demands of further and higher education. Careful and intelligent consideration will be given to the selection of interleaved knowledge and skills across five years of learning. Our ‘Excellence in Teaching’ model of pedagogy, rooted in direct instruction, will support profound learning across a coherent curriculum experience for students.
Our academies will collaborate and share practice, planning and resources to reduce workload, and will be free to adapt their own curricula with respect to their particular context and needs.
