At Maiden Erlegh School in Reading we aim to deliver a high quality curriculum with a range of pathways that provide a stimulating and demanding education for students of all abilities.

We believe that our personalised curriculum produces:

  • Rigour, high standards, coherence across disciplines
  • A core of essential knowledge in the key subject disciplines
  • Freedom for teachers to use professionalism and expertise
  • Memorable experiences which put learning in a wider context
  • A wide range of opportunities for personalised stretch, challenge and support
  • A range of rigorous assessment opportunities which support high quality of information advice and guidance for students and parents
  • Varied option choices for all groups of students including the most able and SEND
  • Varied progression routes for all students post-16

Running through all of our curriculum, including the pastoral curriculum, are strands of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural education (SMSC) which cover themes such as:

  • Making and maintaining positive relationships
  • Staying safe and healthy (including Sex and Relationships Education and cyber-safety)
  • Respect of self and others
  • Equality and inclusion – especially tolerance, respect and understanding of people from protected groups, including those with different faiths and beliefs
  • British values e.g.: rights and responsibilities, democracy and the rule of law
