Our Curriculum

The Harmony Model Curriculum

As part of a multi-academy trust, we benefit from the shared expertise, experiences and collaboration of our colleagues across the organisation.  'The Harmony Model Curriculum' has been written, regularly evaluated, reviewed and adapted by our experienced practitioners over recent years.  It provides an evidence-based approach, structure and guidance which academies implement whilst considering the individual context of their setting.  Teachers and subject leaders are supported with high-quality CPD to ensure they have the skills and knowledge they need to deliver an exciting and meaningful curriculum for the children.

The Alvaston Inspire Curriculum

We aim to provide an excellent education for our children, which develops the highest possible standards. We have adopted the INSPIRE curriculum and have tailored it to ensure children's learning experience maximises achievement within the National Curriculum as well as develop skills, attitudes and attainment in the widest sense.

Our Long Term Plans are in line with the National Curriculum and are devised to incorporate cross-curricular links – where and when appropriate – and to integrate the principles of the INSPIRE curriculum.
