Curriculum

The following section details our school’s curriculum design and content. When Lawn Manor Academy came into existence in 2017 we began a three year curriculum review in order to broaden the options available to our pupils at both KS3 and KS4.

We understand that education is about the whole child and we are also aware of the importance of knowledge. We are now in a position to say that we have developed a truly broad curricular offer. It incorporates a broad range of subjects in our Independence Curriculum. We enable pupils to gain excellent community understanding in and out of school through our Attitude Curriculum and we focus on the development of every child’s character through our Resilience curriculum.

Please find links to further information in our curriculum overviews  and our Curriculum  booklet all available below:

If you require information regarding how we are complying with our duties in the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 about making the curriculum accessible for those with disabilities or special educational needs, please follow the link below:
