Curriculum

Nightingale Community Academy provides students with a curriculum which is broad and balanced, but is also adapted to suit their specific needs.

Students come to Nightingale with very different levels of prior education. Many have been out of school or out of the classroom for a significant period of time before they gain a place at Nightingale; all students have one or more Special Educational Need which has hindered their learning in the past, and there are often significant gaps in their learning as a result. Our curriculum, therefore, aims to close these gaps, particularly in the key skills of literacy and numeracy, whilst ensuring that we open the mind of our students to a wide range of knowledge and experiences which will help them to define and achieve their ambitions.

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
