Curriculum

At Victoria, we aim to educate the ‘Whole Child’.

The curriculum is everything that impacts on the learning of our pupils, the experiences we provide for our children and the environment in which they learn, both formally and informally.

We believe that excellence in teaching, leads to enjoyment of learning.

The Victoria School and Specialist Arts College every child, regardless of race, gender or disability, is entitled to a broad, balanced and creative curriculum which:

  • is relevant and suitably challenging for all pupils;
  • equips pupils with useful, practical and transferable key skills, preparing them for life beyond school;
  • develops independence skills at all levels of development, in order that pupils have control over their lives and are able to make decisions;
  • develops confidence, curiosity and problem solving and thinking skills;
  • ensures that every learner can make a positive contribution in an environment in which they feel safe and valued;
  • ensures that at all stages of development learning should be structured and a stimulating, enjoyable, worthwhile experience in its own right;
  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils;
  • meets the statutory requirements of the Early Years Framework and the National Curriculum in England, whilst ensuring personalised, differentiated learning for every child.
