At Marine Academy Primary, we have developed our own Marine Curriculum which is comprehensive, has a clear process of learning with specific learning goals for every National Curriculum subject, for personal learning and for international mindedness. Our Curriculum sets out clear progression and application of skills across all areas. Parents can have total confidence that the needs of every child, as they grow and develop, can be catered for throughout their years in education with us at Marine Academy Primary. We offer a broad, exciting curriculum which enables each individual pupil to become an effective learner who can go on to realise his or her ambitions.
The Marine Curriculum has been developed for pupils to follow with their specific learning needs in mind. The demands of the 21st Century mean that our pupils will need to be alert to the new technologies and possibilities that these will create, and be able to swiftly adapt to change. We aim to ensure pupils are independently minded and confident citizens of the future. The internet is amazing and used regularly throughout the Academy. Children can play, learn, create and connect - opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. But with the digital world changing all the time, how can you make sure your child’s staying safe?
