STEM Curriculum Intent
To encourage our students to become the best they can be in STEM, we aim to provide a rich and varied curriculum to challenge and meet the needs of all our students, to develop their natural curiosity and an enquiring frame of mind in order to explore and understand the world around them.
We aim to prepare students for the mathematic, scientific and technological developments of the modern world; developing their ability to think creatively, analytically and logically and giving them opportunities to apply the concepts and techniques that they learn in the classroom.
In developing skills in risk taking and resilience, independent enquiry, working collaboratively and taking responsibility we aim to prepare our learners well for everyday life and future employment. We aim to support our students in developing strategies and the confidence to overcome barriers usually encountered due to their deafness and instil passion and motivation in our students by providing opportunities to learn and interact with deaf professionals working in STEM.
