Curriculum Overview and Implementation

Fountaindale Key Areas and Big Ideas

Our curriculum content is separated into our Key Ideas which underpin all our teaching and learning, supported by our Big Ideas. The Big Ideas are a set of six more relatable subjects allowing our young people to learn simple concepts on which they can build knowledge and understanding.  Here are a set of graphics to show the content within each of these Key Areas and Big Ideas.  Please contact Dan Machin, Deputy Headteacher for further information about our curriculum.
