Core Curriculum

A core curriculum of learning and development activity has been developed within the Academy: the range of learning provided will reflect our priorities regarding what our staff will need to know and how they apply it to their practice at the stage they have reached in their professional development.

Some learning will be provided to all our staff: in particular the Attachment And Relationship Based Practice programme with Professor David Shemmings and his teaching team: Yvonne Shemmings and Alice Cook.

Here you can access Statement of Expectations which outlines commitment to learning and development across the organisation.
