Curriculum Intent

The aim of Shelley College is to provide opportunities for students to develop as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who give their personal best to their studies, community and the wider society.  There is a focus on developing student’s moral, spiritual, social and cultural understanding.  We ensure that children are well prepared for a happy and successful life in modern Britain.

Throughout the school, the curriculum is designed and tailored to ensure that all students will have access to a rich, broad and balanced experience, allowing students to develop the knowledge and skills to be successful in future life. The school’s curriculum is planned and sequenced to identify and address student’s gaps, allowing the building of new knowledge and transferable skills.

The main aims of our curriculum since Covid19 are to:

  • help pupils catch up on the learning missed during the COVID 19 closures with skilfully delivered course content;
  • develop blended learning strategies to support the recovery curriculum from September 2020;
  • enable students to progress in all areas, regardless of ability, disability, gender, race or sexuality; 
  • develop successful students who give their personal best and achieve;
    develop the confidence of our students so that they are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives; 
  • enable students to become responsible citizens who make positive contributions to college life; 
  • equip students with the 21st century knowledge and skills needed beyond Shelley College; 
  • encourage students to develop the knowledge and skills needed for employment or training; 
  • offer students the chance to achieve and have high aspirations and ambition;
    offer students the opportunity, through a Skills4Life programme, for moral and spiritual reflection in order to promote confidence, positive emotional and mental health.
