The Pathways Curriculum
At Cecil Jones Academy students follow a personalised pathways curriculum. This curriculum matches their skills, abilities and individual needs. The principle behind this is to provide a curriculum diet that stretches and challenges at all levels and allows students to make progress at all times.
There are four pathways: Purple, Red, Blue and Green.
Each subject has their own boundaries for the pathways and lessons are designed to match the learning needs within them. A student can be in different pathways for different subjects, for example, a red pathway for English and History and a blue for Science. Students will also be able to move within the pathways depending on their progress. Progress within the pathways will be reviewed each half term and opportunities for movement will be identified.
The curriculum is divided as follows:
Key Stage 3: Years 7 and 8
Key Stage 4: Years 9, 10 and 11
Key Stage 5: Years 12 and 13
