Curriculum

At the Clacton Coastal Academy, we aim to ensure that every child ends up in successful employment. To that end, we ensure that our curriculum creates opportunities for students to become independent and self-motivated with the ability to be responsible, determined and aspirational. All students are individuals who develop in different ways and at different rates and the curriculum is designed to meet those individual's needs and provide appropriate technology, qualifications and experiences to support students in their chosen career pathways.

The curriculum is centred around core concepts which are sequenced in order to support students in every subject. Core concepts form the bones of the subject. These pieces of knowledge or skills unlock further learning. Core concepts are sequenced in such a way that students are supported to secure each essential concept before moving onto the next. These concepts are focused around a knowledge-rich curriculum where students learn topics to a high level of depth to help them to tackle mastery of each subject discipline.

We prioritise the development of reading, writing and communication to support students to access new challenges in the curriculum as this is an essential element for success in our local context. Students have dedicated reading lessons, to enhance their reading skills and build a culture of reading. Students read for twenty minutes a day every day. Subject leaders work hard to build vocabulary and increase the number of opportunities for students to read in lessons, with at least one reading focused lesson per half term.

We recognise our young people as individuals, offering support and challenges to empower them to achieve their aspirations with a high standard of lesson content. Where students need further support they are provided with opportunities within our Remarkable Futures programme (which provides intensive support to students at risk of disengaging with education) or our Transition Curriculum (which provides an enhanced curriculum to accelerate the progress of students who join CCA with significant gaps in their learning).

Additionally, there are a variety of enrichment activities to enhance our curriculum that mainly take place during our Wednesday enrichment afternoons. Year 11 and the Sixth form have allocated intervention times and a study hub to support their revision as they build up to their public examinations.

CCA is committed to providing all of our students with a broad and balanced curriculum. It is our belief that this large discipline of all subjects helps our students to receive a strong traditional academic education, while also having time to find expression in the creative subject areas.

CCA Enrichment Activities

We believe enrichment is a wonderful way to offer more "out of classroom" experiences for our students across the year groups. We have devised a broad range of exciting and rewarding activities that will open doors to our students which will promote building and nurturing their personal development in a variety of areas including; teamwork, self-reliance, confidence building and problem-solving. The activities are designed to add an additional layer of learning to each CCA student's offer in a fun and engaging way, which they decide what to participate in.

The goal of the Enrichment programme is to develop students in the following areas:

* Self-worth
* Self-motivation
* Teamwork skills
* Build a sense of purpose
* Strengthen character
* Embed confidence

Each year group across the Academy will have the opportunity to engage in these wonderful activities and year 11 will be intervention-based to support our learners in achieving the best results in their outcomes. Our sixth-form learners will be deployed into the other activities to support and gain leadership experience whilst developing their own skills in the areas previously mentioned.
