In a region of relative geographical isolation, the Academy feels that it is important that the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Dimensions of learning form a central strand in the Academy’s curriculum, so that pupils gain a better understanding of the world around them. This focus allows teachers to be internationally-minded and progressive in their planning and teaching.

The aims of the Academy’s curriculum are:

  • To enable all children to achieve or exceed their potential through learning how to learn and developing their skills, knowledge and understanding

  • To teach children the basic skills and knowledge of literacy, mathematics, science and information technology (IT)

  • To learn how to lead a healthy life by making decisions that support their future health

  • To enable children to be creative and to develop their own thinking skills

  • To help children understand the breadth of Britain’s cultural heritage

  • To enable children to have a voice and be a positive responsible citizen in their community and wider world

  • To foster children’s understanding of the importance of truth and fairness, so that they grow up with a commitment to respect and show empathy for all

  • To help children to have a respect for themselves and high self-esteem
