Everyday the amount of knowledge in the world grows. At Crofton Academy we believe that it is important to teach pupils the skills to be able to find out and use knowledge that they need, when they need it. This skills-based curriculum will complement the traditional subject based curriculum. It will focus on the following key areas:
Aspiration and attitude - this is about the goals and targets we set ourselves
Smart - this looks at our learning styles and how we think creatively
Person and place - this focuses on who we are as a person, morals and citizenship as members of a wide community
Information - this is the knowledge to enable effective communication
Resilience and reflection - this is about the way in which we manage ourselves to enable effective learning to take place
Enquiry - this focuses on problem solving techniques and collaborative learning
Through the use of new technologies, different styles and approaches to learning we aim to develop independence, skills and knowledge that pupils need to the changing demands of the workplace.
