Based on the school’s ethos of Aspire, Believe, Succeed. The Absolute curriculum encompasses everything not covered at a subject level. This includes: assemblies (year and house), designated collapsed timetable days to cover citizenship and British Values and the pastoral programme.
The ABSolute curriculum also aims to fulfill our statutory requirements of providing quality RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education) as well as contributing towards the promotion of British Values and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development).
The aim of this curriculum is to build students’ knowledge and understanding of the world they live in, their rights and responsibilities as well as promoting tolerance and understanding.
A key aspect of the programme is a community project which will get students out into the local community to make a positive difference to the community they live in. This will focus on volunteering of differing types which will hopefully make them prouder and therefore more respecting of Nailsea.
The pastoral programme, assemblies and 5 collapsed sessions will form the main part of the ABSolute curriculum in order to deepen understanding of a number of key areas, especially careers and further study.
Sixth Form also take part in the sessions, with their own curriculum and foci for sessions.
