At Ambleside Academy, we adopt a clear and consistent approach to teaching to ensure that within each lesson pupils learn well. Across the school, we teach the foundation subjects using the CUSP curriculum, which pays close attention to the National Curriculum sequence and content. CUSP is guided by evidence-led curriculum structures, such as retrieval, spaced retrieval practice and interleaving. It is underpinned by explicit vocabulary instruction and research-focused pedagogy. Evidence leads to exceptional outcomes for pupils, as a result of coherent curriculum design and instructional teaching.Find out more

What Pupils & Parents are saying
Since starting reception Ava has come on leaps and bounds. She can count to 20 forwards and backwards and can read short words in books, so super proud of everything the school has to offer to help support the children.
I am very happy with my children’s progress. All staff are very kind and helpful. Thank you so much for your great effort towards our children, really appreciate.
Very welcoming and fun for the kids. Jenson’s learnt so much since starting school he can’t wait for reception.
I am good at writing – I wrote a story about a princess who liked pink and yellow. Exercising is my favourite thing to do, like skipping and climbing and jumping. There is a big climbing frame outside made of wood with ropes to hold on to. There is a water wall and I pour water in and Jaliyah catches it in her bucket.
I like reading and learning new things. I love doing maths because it makes me smarter.
We have Ambleside Author’s day where we can write about whatever we want. We have so many great curriculum days such as the Robot day – it’s brilliant! All of the staff are very kind. If there is something wrong, they always help us with our problems. Our topic themes each term are brilliant because it’s fun to learn about things that we have never known before.
