Curriculum Vision Statement and Plan 2018-2019

Our curriculum vision is to establish a learning community that provides a safe and supportive environment characterised by high expectations and aspirations. We wish to develop students into responsible young adults who are able and willing to contribute to society. The school’s programmes of study reflect the tenets of the national curriculum and are designed so students can make the most of local and national labour market opportunities. Option choices at Key stage 4 and 5 afford students the opportunity to engage with prominent local employer sectors and offer robust pathways into higher education and apprenticeships. The school believes in offering curriculum choices which are inclusive and personalised so all students can enjoy their learning and achieve. Our vision is breadth and balance to deliver a curriculum that ensures Treviglas students maintain high academic standards within a caring environment. We want and expect all of our students to respect others, work hard and be successful. Every student is entitled to experience a rich curriculum in order to be inspired to try new things in the classroom, on the sports field and in the creative and performing arts, broadening their experience, discovering new talents and ensuring their academic success. Treviglas is a school where all students enjoy achieving their best.
