The GFM recognises that excellent teaching and learning is led by the needs of the learner. It is good practice to adapt plans according to what is in the best interests of our students. Learning lost because of the pandemic is something we are responding to. Therefore our curriculum intentions outlined here are an example and taster of our planning.
