There is a requirement for all schools to publish the outline curriculum for each year group on their website. It is impossible to publish details of every aspect of the curriculum. The links below provide access to outlines of the key content for each year group.  It should be noted that the details below are the ‘standard curriculum’ requirements; we constantly differentiate these to support and extend all pupils.

See link below for Focus Trust Curriculum Statement.  Working within this, all academies in the Trust have developed their own curriculum statements.

Staff will always be very happy to discuss the content of the curriculum in more detail with any parent or carer.  Please contact the office if you wish to find our more about the curriculum at Shibden Head.
