The Learn, Aspire, Exceed (LAE) curriculum is a great opportunity for students in year 7 to take their learning a step further, to apply the skills they have learnt in the classroom and use them in a more practical way. We believe that this extended curriculum gives opportunities for students to enhance their learning about subjects and the different job roles and responsibilities associated with more practical work.
Research shows that participation in extra-curricular activities can positively impact on attainment, increase a pupil’s positive identification with school, and build self-confidence and resilience. Research also shows that children that do not have access to these opportunities fall behind, lack confidence, and fail to develop career aspirations. The resulting attainment gap is so significant that 25% of children from the most disadvantaged backgrounds achieve below expected attainment levels. We believe that this extended curriculum gives opportunities for students to enhance their learning about subjects and also the different job roles and responsibilities associated with more practical work.
LAE curriculum allows students to work in teams to collaboratively ask questions, creatively solve problems, and enthusiastically learn through hands-on exploration.
The year 7 programme consists of:
An important part of this experience for students is that they are not following any prescribed curriculum. There are no lesson plans required, nor marking and assessments. What we want is for staff to deliver sessions which highlight their passion for their subject. This enthusiasm you will see if you visit these sessions (they are not ‘lessons’), witnessing the enthusiasm of students as they engage in the activities.
