London South East Academies Trust Curriculum Statement
Bromley Educational Trust (BET), as part of London South East Academies Trust (LSEAT), fully adheres to the aims and values of LSEAT.
BETs core purpose is to ensure all students are able to achieve and succeed in life. Our curriculum is therefore designed to allow our students to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens; regardless of their starting points.
Through our holistic curriculum approach, the academic, emotional, physical and social development of all students are seen as equal parts. We believe achievement and success is created by a rich and dynamic curriculum that creates curiosity, engagement, enjoyment and participation.
Our curriculum includes a comprehensive core offer in literacy and numeracy which enables our students to then access other curriculum areas.
Also central to our curriculum is a wide range of opportunities to develop Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural awareness to help with the preparation for next phase of life and ultimately adult life and the world of work.
Other fundamental aspects of our curriculum are the therapeutic and pastoral characteristics which are key to enabling access to academic learning by students recognising that their own and others wellbeing are essential to success.
The key measures of our curriculum being a success are:
- Destination data
- Attainment and accreditation
- Progress measures
