The curriculum at Trinity Academy St Chad’s offers a wide range of opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom, so that all children achieve academic success, develop life-long skills and expand on their cultural capital.

Our ambitious curriculum is coherently structured and at each stage matches the demands of the national curriculum and beyond to ensure children can meet and exceed age related expectations. The curriculum is designed so that each year builds to the next: children are able to recall previous knowledge, make connections, build subject fluency and really deepen their understanding. Across each subject, the knowledge, skills and understanding are carefully mapped out, and teachers use their professional expertise to adapt the schemes of learning so that the needs of all learners in individual classes are met.

All Trinity academies have the highest of academic standards and our core values of Empathy, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility are integral to our day to day workings. We support every child and young person to grow as well-rounded, caring and responsible citizens who can play a positive and significant role in society. When children leave St Chad’s, we aim to have provided an educational experience that has given all children the opportunity to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually so that they are well prepared and confident to start the next stage of their education.
