What is unique about our curriculum?

Our curriculum is rooted in the area of the world that our children live in, directly drawing on the opportunities, partnerships and experiences that our locality has to offer. We use this for place-based learning and to provide our pupils with aspirational opportunities using real life skills.

It is designed to accelerate progress to overcome disadvantage across all subjects, but with a necessary focus on English and Mathematics. We strive to deeply embed learning in all aspects of life at Ryelands, constantly building on prior knowledge and helping the children to develop their skills base to the point where they are able to visualise a bright and inspiring future for themselves.

We provide our children with a creative and values rich environment, with a clear commitment to celebrating what is unique about each and every individual within our school; we fully understand that it is essential for us to provide a safe and secure environment for them to explore and develop themselves as people and the resilience that they need to succeed.

We are constantly developing a curriculum that we believe will help our children to become changemakers, innovators and responsible citizens for a sustainable world. Our ability to succeed in learning is driven by three main components: at Ryelands, we are always responsible, respectful to others and ready to learn.

The website should give you a flavour of what we have to offer, however please do contact us at school if you require any further information.
