We understand that pupils arrive at school with varied experiences. Through this layer of the curriculum, we provide pupils with a wide variety of experiences to develop their interests. These experiences are designed to deepen their understanding of the world.

Pupils are taught the importance of charity and inclusion and that their opinions and contributions are valued; this is evident in academy council. Our pupils are involved in democratic processes to vote in the Head Pupils and Academy Council members.
