At Don Valley Academy our curriculum is designed to be ambitious and designed to give all learners the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. Our focus to provide opportunities for students to develop lifelong interests whilst acquiring important social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills. This is achieved across the curriculum including; subject lessons, EPC, CEIAG, Form Time and Enrichment. This time can also be used to provide support for the academic challenges faced by students each day in school.
Through developing the aforementioned skills students will improve their self-esteem while developing higher aspirations in both current academic situations and in pursuing long term careers. The provision of our enrichment varies through clubs and activities that encourage our students to pursue special interests such as music, sport and artistic performance.
