At Maltby Redwood Academy we believe that the school curriculum should be broad and balanced, offering children the opportunity to achieve success in many different areas. Although our curriculum is based on the National expectations, there are other planned opportunities that make up the wider curriculum.
We follow a theme-based approach to learning through Cornerstones, in the belief that children learn best when logical connections are made between different aspects of their work. We believe passionately in giving the children ownership of their learning. We support our children in becoming ‘aspirational’ – aiming high – in order to make the most of their learning opportunities. Maltby Redwood Academy believes in an active partnership between school, pupil and parents. Teaching and learning is matched to pupils preferred learning styles, is differentiated to match ability and makes the most of our developing provision in ICT to support this.
