Every student is entitled to a broad, balanced, relevant, coherent, progressive and differentiated curriculum. At
all stages of development, learning should be structured, and should be a stimulating, enjoyable and worthwhile
experience in its own right. Equality of access and opportunity should underpin provision for all.
The aim at Risedale is to provide a world class curriculum which stimulates and
motivates students irrespective of background. All students deserve the chance
to aspire to a future beyond the normal constraints. Our curriculum looks to
break the mould, and raise expectations, so that students understand they are
part of a greater, wider world with practically limitless possibilities. The main
mantra of our curriculum is to be inclusive, to challenge and to engage all
students positively in their learning through a broader understanding of the
world around them. Throughout this, we emphasise kindness and empathy
through a family ethos.
To achieve this, we have 5 clear pillars which underpins our whole school
Looking to the Future
Jobs of the future, with the increasing reliance on computers and artificial intelligence, are a great unknown. However all employers agree that students need and deserve a rounded curriculum which encourages problem solving, strong social skills, team-work, collaboration and independence. We pledge at Risedale to ensure your child is well placed to face these future challenges with a positive outlook and strong resilience. Check out our Careers page for further information.
