New Basics is an innovative multi-disciplinary curriculum that provides students with a combination of skills that will equip them for life in the 21st Century. It revolves around the 4 Rich Tasks that are taught to all student consecutively.
The Curriculum is based around the Targeted Repertoires of Practice, which form the basis of the Rich Tasks. These Rich Tasks combine a wealth of deep knowledge and finish with a specific output at the end of the 9 week cycle. The output will be assessed by the Rich Task Leader and the Pod Leader together at the end of this period. Students undertake studies in Maths, English and PE in these faculties.
As a year group we are sponsoring 4 children from around the world, through the charity ActionAid.
