Drama is a statutory part of English in the National Curriculum, and we strive to ensure that all pupils could participate in and gain knowledge, skills and understanding associated with the artistic practice of Drama. Our curriculum ambition is to provide an academic Drama curriculum that develops knowledge, skills and cultural capital. The coherent planning is sequenced towards pupils collaborating creatively to confidently present their ideas for an audience through live performance. We aim to develop pupils’ interpersonal skills and to stimulate their imaginations to explore issues beyond their own experience, in a safe and supportive environment. The curriculum begins in term 1 with characterisation and performance skills, is then built on in term 2 by exploring how we apply this knowledge in script work, moving from page to stage. This knowledge is consolidated in term 3 by implementing in learning on composite performances through devising.
