To provide our pupils with a wide body of knowledge and skills, whilst developing pupils’ character to live by the belief that ‘better never stops.
It is our aim that by the time the children leave Spa Academy Askern to embark on the next stage of their education, they are equipped with the academic skills and knowledge, and have developed the personal attributes needed to enable them to become successful citizens of the future.
Our curriculum is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has come before. The academic learning is underpinned by a strong emphasis on personal development and social skills so that children make and maintain healthy relationships with others. They learn responsibility and develop a sense of self so that they understand and value their place in the world and respect the same for others.
The curriculum at Spa Academy Askern's main aim is to provide a wide range of learning opportunities and experiences. It is our desire that children and their families value their learning and seize all and make use of any opportunity wholeheartedly, therefore we aim to ensure the offer to learn is strong in every classroom.
Our carefully-crafted, challenging and ambitious literature spine underpins our curriculum design. Why? Our pupils' future success is dependent on their ability to read with confidence and fluency. More information regarding the Literature Spine can be found on our English page here. Wrapped around our literature spine, all curriculum subjects are taught. Information can be found on individual subject pages here.
