Curriculum Overview

The aims and statutory elements of the national curriculum are met within our own, and we endeavour to provide this through inspiring lessons, that encourage learning, and support every student whilst catering for individual needs.

As part of our fair and balanced curriculum, all students can expect to be taught: English, Maths and Science, Spanish, Technologies, PE, Religious Education, Geography, History, Music, Drama, Art and Citizenship/PSHE until the end of Key Stage 3 when they choose their GCSE options.  Their timetable then becomes more personalised, according to their preferences and skills.

Literacy, mathematics, computing skills and SMSC (spiritual, moral, social and cultural education), are developed across all subjects, and each student is supported to achieve confidence and proficiency in these areas, as part of their basic skills. Small group support and coaching in a range of areas, is provided where students may need it in order to reach their potential.

Where necessary and appropriate, the curriculum is adapted to suit the needs of an individual student through dis-application of the National Curriculum - this is done in close collaboration with parents, teachers and support teams.

At de Stafford we work hard to plan a fair and balanced curriculum which matches the needs of every single one of our students, from the moment they arrive in Year 7, all the way until they finish their GCSE studies at the end of Year 11.

You can find more information on individual subjects by visiting our Subjects page.

Should you require further information on any aspect of our curriculum, please email Jeff Place, Deputy Headteacher jeff.place@destafford.org.uk
