Ofsted good practice example showing how Middlestone Moor transformed core and foundation subjects.



Middlestone Moor School transformed provision in core and foundation subjects by an innovative approach to curriculum design. Standards are above average and rising as a result of pupil progress and personal development. Independent study skills, creative and formal writing skills, self-confidence and understanding of scientific enquiry are strong characteristics and begin from an early age. Social, moral, spiritual and cultural aspects are carefully integrated into every topic.
