Birches Head Academy

Curriculum


The School Day And Lesson Times

In order to ensure that Birches Head Academy is a place where all children can learn we design a curriculum which is inclusive, broad and balanced. The Head Teacher is assisted in the planning and delivery of the curriculum by a team, which includes the senior leadership team, subject leaders, classroom teachers and teaching assistants. All staff are responsible for raising standards to pupil attainment and achievement within the subject area and are expected to monitor and support pupil progress across the key stages. Subject leaders ensure the provision of an appropriately broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum. They will deploy staff and resources for their department to meet all learners needs and changed in pedagogy. Pupils have the opportunity to study all the subjects that contribute to the “English Baccalaureate.”
