A destinations curriculum which aims to provide rich learning experiences for all

The aim of the Conyers curriculum is that all students are given a wide range of experiences, within and beyond the classroom, through which they gain the knowledge and skills they require to make a successful transition to education or employment at 16 or 18. Subject leaders plan a 7 year curriculum starting with (if appropriate) the national curriculum. This overview acts as a framework for detailed schemes of work that ensure there is a coherent sequence to what children learn and when they learn it. Provision for students with SEND is modified so that their needs are met whilst maintaining curriculum breadth.
