In KS3 the aim is to provide a global, yet personalised, curriculum that offers the opportunity for discovery and achievement. The revised curriculum is designed to give pupils a strong sense of their own identity and so generate confidence and fulfilment and the belief that every individual can make a positive contribution. The curriculum model encourages pupils to make discoveries, to be excited and to want to find out more. Learning will be personalised and achievements recognised and celebrated. The emphasis is on the development of skills and understanding and on encouraging learners to investigate and expand their subject knowledge through a range of activities designed for the individual.
