The Dearne ALC is a strong, morally driven school where inclusivity underpins all that we do, truly believing that Every Child Matters. Senior Leaders are committed to ensure that the needs of all the children are being met through our curriculum offer. The curriculum offer is reviewed annually and curriculum design and evaluation has a pivotal role to play in ensuring children achieve the best possible outcomes for their future. We have embraced the new GCSE 9-1 specifications and have moved to a more demanding, yet broad and balanced curriculum. We see the curriculum as the building blocks on which good teaching and learning can take place.
