At NUSA, our curriculum furnishes our students with the subject knowledge and personal development to empower them to ‘write their own life story’. The key focus throughout our curriculum emphasises embedding literacy and numeracy across all the subjects that we teach. We firmly believe that both literacy and numeracy are the keys to opening the door to learning and access to a broad range of opportunities beyond NUSA.
Each subject places specialist vocabulary, reading and class talk at the heart of their curriculum planning to create confident, articulate young people who are empowered to write, and own, their story. We carefully select ambitious knowledge to be taught across all subjects and ensure that this builds on the knowledge learnt at KS2.
Alongside the subject specific knowledge, we also ensure that students are provided with the opportunities to develop their understanding of careers in each of the subject areas, so that they are fully equipped to make ambitious choices for their future beyond NUSA.
