TLG Manchester

Our Curriculum

Our priority is to offer short term interventions that can help bring about real change, equipping young people to re-engage in education. 

1. The structure of the curriculum seeks to address the serious issue of cumulative disfluency that many of our students have experienced. The curriculum reflects the school’s local context by addressing typical gaps in pupils’ knowledge and skills, in this way, it can powerfully address social disadvantage.

2. Help students to improve levels of literacy and numeracy through the core subjects of English and Maths. In English this will include developing students’ vocabulary and a love of reading because of the correlation between vocabulary size and life chances.

3. At TLG we want to develop our students as better thinkers. Developing thinking skills means designing learning– to engage them in better quality thinking. Part of our curriculum intent is to make learning and thinking skills more visible in particular the 4 key areas of: 

- Problem-Solving and Decision-Making
- Managing Information
- Effective Enquiry
- Creative Thinking

4. All TLG schools meet the requirements of the Independent School Standards by giving students experience in the following areas of learning: linguistic; mathematical; scientific; technological; human and social; physical; and aesthetic and creative.

Our school seeks to educate young people about citizenship and cultural development that includes teaching about fundamental British values. We promote equality of opportunity and diversity for staff and students and do not tolerate prejudiced behaviour or attitudes. 

Staff work hard to protect students from radicalisation and extremism by being open to discussion about these issues, and are swift to identify and respond to vulnerable students.

In line with DfE guidance, our PSHCE curriculum includes age appropriate Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) for all pupils. Our underpinning Christian ethos ensures that our approach models and encourages values such as respect for self and others and an acknowledgement and understanding of diversity regarding religion, culture, gender and sexual orientation.

Parents views are central to developing our RSE provision.  Parents and are invited to share with us the RSE needs of their child using this secure online form.
