Curriculum Principles and Intent

Curriculum Implementation and Impact

All of the schools in the Trust work within the Trust Curriculum Principles and agreed end of year outcomes, but take into account local context, school identity and need when planning for the actual implementation and best impact of their curriculum.

This means that schools are able to take a local, bespoke approach to the teaching of specific subjects and choices of schemes of work, though there are many Trust-wide networks to support teacher interchange, subject development and to ensure teaching and learning is truly effective.

Every school in the Trust describes its approach to the curriculum and individual subject planning on their school websites, which can be accessed via the ‘Our Schools’ tab

Our Trust Writing Strategy

At STAR we believe the power of literacy is fundamental to the life chances of our learners. Our Writing Strategy is applicable across all key stages and schools and aims to help us develop confident, competent writers.
