Welcome to the Year 11 Curriculum Guide for Sirius Academy for 2010-2011

The aim of this guide is to give parents/carers and students an overview of the curriculum that is available to our Year 10 students.

Sirius Academy offers a broad and balanced curriculum which combines a rigorous focus on key skills along with an exciting range of activities both within lessons and in extra curricular time. A wide range of extra curricular opportunities are on offer and students are strongly encouraged to take part in those activities whether sporting, cultural or academic.

There is a core curriculum for all students in Year 11 which includes Maths, English, Science, PE, RE and ICT. Core subjects develop key skills which provide the essential foundations on which other subjects build students knowledge and understanding in specialist areas. Core subjects are central to every students curriculum offer. There is a diverse and exciting range of optional courses in Year 11 which are delivered by well qualified experienced staff at the Academy. In addition are a number of opportunities for Sirius students to work with educational providers who work in partnership with the Academy. With our own staff expertise and through effective partnership the Academy offers a dynamic, innovative and motivational curriculum which engages students and allows them to succeed.

As part of the Options programme, students are able to study a wide range of GCSEs and BTECs, details of which are provided in this booklet.

At Sirius the staff and parents/carers work together to promote the education and well-being of every student. Attendance is essential and we expect every student to be committed to attend the Academy every day. 100% attendance is every student's goal.

The student planner provides a means of communication between home and the Academy. We encourage parents/ carers to check their child's diary regularly to ensure homework tasks have been completed.
