BBEC Curriculum Intent 

The aim of the curriculum at BBEC is to:

  • Develop the whole child to ensure that they embody BBEC’s values, both in and out of school, by being ambitious and resilient in their work and courteous and kind in their interactions with other people.
  • provide an all-round education that delivers excellent outcomes in terms of academic success, improved cultural capital and increased aspiration and ambition in order to counter social disadvantage.
  • nurture academic habits and skills, determination, independence, resilience, emotional intelligence and creativity across a wide range of subjects including the arts, music, performing arts, IT, technology and sport
  • foster confidence, delight, resilience and discipline in seeking knowledge; a buzz for learning.
  • secure high levels of literacy, oracy and numeracy to enable students fully to participate in their acquisition of knowledge at BBEC and (the world) beyond
  • guide students to develop morally, intellectually and creatively
  • develop the whole child, ensuring students are socially aware, confident and are courteous, kind and compassionate to one another, thus building the skills to become good citizens.
  • develop knowledge of, and pride in, Buttershaw and Bradford as well as developing ambition and awareness of the possibilities outside the local environment.
The school offers a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum which reflects the requirements for inclusion and equality as set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 2014 and Equality Act 2010.
Years 7, 8 and 9 curriculums build on Key Stage 2, but also offer the opportunity to discover new subjects in depth, permitting an informed choice of curriculum pathways and option subjects in Years 10 and 11. Students who need support, particularly with literacy and maths, from primary school will be given extra support.
