REAL Projects

At Scartho Junior Academy we aim to provide a rich, creative, inclusive, challenging and real-world curriculum that inspires all our children and adults alike. 


Our main pedagological approach is 'REAL Projects'. This is a hugely engaging approach, which aims to ensure that all of our children succeed and love to learn. 


Learning through REAL Projects is a design for learning that connects deep subject content with real world problem solving. REAL Projects enable all students to create extraordinary work that matters. All the children gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge. This involves several skills and stages ; an essential question, 21st century skills, in depth inquiry, student voice and choice, learning for purpose and authentic audiences. The projects must be ‘Rigorous’, be 'Engaging', be shared with ‘Authentic’ audiences, and the children must ‘Learn’ throughout. All of these skills and aspects ensure children are engaged in learning to the highest level possible.
