Working definition of the curriculum “The curriculum is a framework for setting out the aims of a programme of education, including the knowledge and skills to be gained at each stage (intent); for translating that framework over time into a structure and narrative, within an institutional context (implementation) and for evaluating what knowledge and skills pupils have gained against expectations (impact/achievement).” Ofsted

Holy Trinity Church School’s Curriculum intent is underpinned by our Christian vision and runs alongside the Bath and Wells Multi-Academy Trust’s ‘Curriculum Principles and Curriculum Intent’
