At Malby Redwood Academy, our curriculum intends to provide a well-rounded education that meets the needs of all students. Our aim is to cultivate confident, resilient learners who are equipped with the skills, knowledge and values needed for a successful future.

We place a strong emphasis on foundational skills and aim to ensure that our students become fluent readers, writers and mathematicians. Our curriculum builds on prior learning, which allows students to make connections between different subjects and apply their learning in innovative and creative ways. We encourage curiosity, motivating students to ask questions and explore new ideas.

Effective communication is central to our curriculum. We focus on oracy, supporting students to articulate their ideas clearly and listen respectfully to others. This focus helps to develop confident speakers who can express their thoughts, collaborate effectively and interact socially.

We promote a culture of kindness, in which children have respect for themselves and for others and every student feels valued and accepted.

By developing resilience, we encourage students to persevere and learn from their experiences. We want to prepare students for the next stage of their education so they can become successful citizens who reach their full potential.

Redwood Academy is a school which will always:

  • Make learning the priority
  • Strive to continually self-evaluate and improve
  • Encourage and value extended learning opportunities including sport and the creative and performing arts.
  • Develop a learning partnership between children, parents, school and the local community.
