At The Rawlett School we are proud to offer a curriculum that is well balanced, relevant and although based on the National Curriculum not limited by it.In Key Stage Three all students have discrete lessons in Art, Citizenship, Design and Technology, Drama, English, Geography, History, Mathematics, Music, PE, Philosophy and Ethics (RE) and Science.
In Year 7 all students study both French and German; they then have the opportunity to specialise in one of these from Year 8. Students are grouped in a number of different ways.
In Key Stage Four all students follow a core curriculum of English, Mathematics, Philosophy and Ethics, Science and PE. They take additional options from a range of academic, applied and vocational courses. We take an individual approach to the English Baccalaureate, encouraging but not forcing students to take the required courses.
Our Philosophy and Ethics curriculum has been developed from the Staffordshire Agreed Syllabus and aims to promote the spiritual, moral and social development of our students and the awareness and understanding of different cultures. At Key Stage Four all students are prepared to sit a GCSE in Philosophy and Ethics in May/June of Year 10.
In additional to a rigorous approach to supporting our students to achieve the highest standard in GCSE and other qualifications, we also recognise the importance of supporting them to develop their emotional well being. We have a number of PSHE focus days during the year when we collapse our normal timetable to allow students to learn about a particular emotional, personal or economic well-being topic.
We recognise the importance of reading and have a dedicated reading time each day, when the school stops and reads silently together.
