The rationale behind Pedmore High School’s curriculum is to make our offer broad and balanced so students gain a wide variety of knowledge, understanding and skills. We want to ensure our curriculum constantly raises every student’s achievements by providing a positive learning environment which develops an enquiring mind and a love of learning; one which personalises every student’s learning needs.
Our curriculum is designed to build on prior learning to ensure that education in all areas is progressive and moves students forward. It is supported by enrichment activities to help students see the relevance of what they are learning to the outside world as well as give them opportunities to extend their knowledge. A real driver is to enhance all students’ cultural capital.
In addition, our curriculum aim is to develop the skills, attitudes and abilities of our students to enable them to make effective decisions about their future education, training, employment and life as an adult member of society. We are determined to grow our students’ individual and social responsibility, that impacts positively on personal development to equip them to become active citizens in modern Britain and prepare them for their next steps whatever they may be. We want our students to leave Pedmore High School with the best possible academic qualifications and a love of learning that will remain with them for life.
