Northgate Curriculum


Curriculum Statement



At Djanogly Northgate Academy, we believe our unique children deserve a holistic curriculum that shapes them as aspirational individuals. Through purposeful and rich experiences, we aim to broaden children’s perspectives on life and instil a life-long passion for learning.


We believe in an ambitious, knowledge-rich curriculum because children are empowered by knowing things. The specifics of what children learn matter and subject traditions are respected, providing the vital inspiration, challenge and confidence to choose their own future.
