Our Curriculum

Curriculum Statement

At Marshbrook we set our own curriculum based on the National Curriculum. The curriculum is aimed to be broad, ambitious, challenging and enjoyable. Our curriculum is underpinned by our Visible Learning approach following the research of Professor John Hattie.

Our Local Governing Committee has been delegated responsibility by Penk Valley Academy Trust to approve and monitor our curriculum policies, plans, implementation and impact. Local Governors work with us to ensure the curriculum intent and implementation are of a high-standard. The impact of our curriculum is measured through internal and external assessment and is scrutinised by the Local Governing Committee who report back to the Standards & Performance Committee of Penk Valley Academy Trust.

As a school in a three-tier system (First, Middle and High Schools) we work closely with the schools into which we feed to ensure our curriculum is well-sequenced across all National Curriculum Key Stages.

More information about the content of the curriculum our school follows by academic year and subject, is available on this website.
