Curriculum Intent

At Akiva we want our children to be happy, confident and knowledgeable British citizens with a love of Israel and all aspects of their Progressive Judaism. With this in mind we have built our curriculum with certain elements at the heart of all our learning.  When teachers are planning their lessons they ensure that the activities are authentic and have a real purpose.  They ensure that the learning is relevant to the children’s lives in the 21st century.  We want the children to engage in their Jewish identity whilst looking outward at the world and understand their role in modern Britain.   We have high aspirations for our pupils and through our broad and balanced curriculum we provide first hand learning experiences that allow our pupils to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience, become responsible Jewish citizens and creative, critical thinkers.

The curriculum and timetable is fluid and is designed by experienced teachers who follow the children’s interests within units balanced with meeting the objectives for the year group.  In many cases this direction means that the children learn more deeply and beyond what is expected of them within the National Curriculum.    

 Children leave Akiva with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, take responsibility for their choices, make connections and become lifelong learners.

You can see the content for the curriculum in each year group and for each subject, either through the year group curriculum overviews or in the detailed subject progression maps.
