The core purpose of our curriculum at South Nottinghamshire Academy is to raise student achievement. Our curriculum intent is underpinned by the core principles of challenge for all, breadth and depth, improving literacy (in particularly reading) and the 3C’s (collaboration, creativity and critical thinking) delivered through personalised learning pathways for students throughout all key stages.

As a school, we will:

  • Provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all of our students.
  • Ensure our curriculum meets all statutory requirements, including lessons on important issues (e.g. S.R.E -Sex and Relationships Education, Religious Education etc.)
  • Ensure our curriculum offers equal opportunities to all our students; including students with special and additional needs (see SEN policy for more details), and students of all abilities; including stretch and challenge for more-able students.
  • Regularly review our curriculum and respond to recent developments and incorporate best practice.
  • Offer a curriculum that fosters students enthusiasm for learning and recognises progress and achievement.
  • Encourage students to continue their learning outside of the classroom as part of our wider curriculum and SNA Plus extra-curricular offer

In addition to the main curriculum at Key Stage 3-5, all students at South Nottinghamshire Academy also study PSHE, Citizenship and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education). These important aspects of our students’ education take place during tutor time, assemblies, enrichment activities and during special events during the school year.
