Our Curriculum Model


At Illuminate Minds Trust we aim to provide learners with an educational experience that provides them with the skills, knowledge and character to understand and contribute to the world they live in. Wherever possible we look for meaningful opportunities across the curriculum for the children to make connections with their learning whilst not compromising on the knowledge they need to build upon.


We have designed our own bespoke curriculum, with the local community and the children we serve at the heart of it. Children learn about their local area first, before widening out to London, other areas of the UK and finally the wider world. Our curriculum aims to be aspirational so that when children leave here, they are inspired to achieve beyond their school.


Our bespoke topic based curriculum is structured with clear progression, so that all stakeholders are aware of the children’s learning journey from EYFS to Year 6 and beyond. Opportunities are built in for children to make connections between subjects and core themes throughout their time at our school. However, children are taught each subject explicitly so they leave our schools with strong subject knowledge ready for the next stage on their learning journey. We provide excellence everyday, through an engaging and diverse curriculum that harnesses pupils’ imagination. We ensure that cross-curricular opportunities are planned and delivered to meet the needs of all pupils, providing them with a variety of cultural capital experiences.
