ELAN Curriculum Principles


We agree that our schools' curriculum must: 


  • be at least as ambitious as the National Curriculum 
  • be broad with carefully chosen content that is well-structured and logically sequenced 
  • be designed to give all learners, the knowledge, skills and cultural capital they need to take advantage of future opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of further learning and employment - to succeed in life. 
  • embrace the individuality of each school 
  • ensure a common entitlement at each stage of pupil’s education using trust wide agreed progression documents 
  • be quality assured through mutual critique
