In addition to ongoing quality assurance the staff are engaged in exploring the curriculum and the way in which we deliver it, with a view of ensuring the highest standards of delivery and consistency in the pupil’s learning and teaching experiences and opportunities throughout the school. To this end the staff have opted into groups of their choosing to explore the way we present the curriculum to our pupils.
