Years 7-11 Curriculum

At Grove Academy, we believe that every child should feel welcome, successful and included. In the classroom this is demonstrated by:

  • Learning that is authentic and purposeful. 
  • A commitment to high quality talk using formal, academic language at every opportunity.

  • Learning that makes success clear and accessible to all, through lessons that prioritise knowledge key learning with retrieval practice woven in.

  • A relentless focus on planning and teaching of reading skills, so that students understand how meaning is constructed through language choice and form.

  • Learners being active participants in their learning and demonstrating high standards for themselves and each other through quality interactions and contributions both verbal and written.  Books will evidence pride in learning.
