All students, without regard to age, aptitude, attainment level, ability or social circumstances, are entitled to an education of the highest quality. Education is of value for its own sake and TQEA seeks to encourage all students to learn at school, outside school and beyond academy age.
The academy curriculum recognises individual student needs and abilities and supports the development of intellectual, cultural, moral, aesthetic, spiritual, physical and social qualities.
At TQEA, we have developed a broad and balanced curriculum that enables students to learn, recall and apply knowledge and skills across different contexts, supported by a robust and consistent approach to assessment. The curriculum makes meaningful links between areas of knowledge across the curriculum and the major issues of our time.This will lead to successful and resilient lifelong learners who can cope in a range of changing contexts.
TQEA’s Curriculum will support the Academy Aims of “We can and We Will”. At the heart of TQEA’s curriculum is the focus on reading which can be seen to permeate all subjects.
The academy aims to maximise potential in academic terms. However we also aim to provide enrichment activities that broaden a student’s experiences whilst at our academy. It is our ambition to encourage our young people to develop into responsible citizens with moral purpose and values that help sustain their everyday lives. We are committed to all students and believe that each individual matters and should be provided for wherever possible.
We plan to provide quality educational experiences that will enable us to celebrate the successes of all students achieving their potential and provide inspirational and motivating learning opportunities. The promotion of life-long learning that encourages individuals to become valued members of the community will, we believe, provide a secure pathway towards the future independence for all.
