Core Zone

Cranfield Church of England Academy is a dual-site school, in which the parity and movement forwards of our curriculum is a joint effort between both sites. Working in collaborative ‘zone’ teams, with staff members from each site, each led by a member of the Senior Leadership Team serves to empower subject leadership and unite our sites better and ensure consistent expectation and drive across all zones.

What is the intent of the Core Zone?

The Core Zone seeks to enable life in all its fullness, the Academy’s Christian vision, through ensuring all pupils have the necessary skills to read, write, use mathematical skills and scientific understanding to explore, discover and reason in the world around them.
