Curriculum Statement

We are currently in the process of reviewing the curriculum offer at Daventry Hill.

Our curriculum aim is to prepare our pupils for the next stage in their lives and to take their place in the wider community around them.

Careers and Employability play an important role at Daventry Hill School and we are confident of meeting the government’s requirement for school to meet the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks by 2020. 

 

At Daventry Hill School we believe that we must always be aware of our young people's potential outcomes for adulthood to be able to deliver learning that is worthwhile and meaningful. This starts from early years.

Each step along the way to meet these outcomes must have an overarching purpose that supports development into the next stage. To enable this to happen effectively, we have developed our curriculum stairs which indicates the key purpose for each key stage through a young person's journey at our school.

Throughout the young person's journey at school we will be developing key skills that enable our learners to be not only successful in life but we place a large emphasis on these to gain and sustain employment. These skills are assessed from entry to the school and progress monitored regularly. For more information please visit https://www.skillsbuilder.org/

Underpinning the ethos of our curriculum at all stages is Preparing for Adulthood. The four strands of PfA enable us to concentrate our offer to students on learning that we feel is valuable to ensure that we help to enable our students to become happy, successful adults.
