Some of the subjects Kingsdale Foundation School curriculum cover include British Values, Business D&T Intro, and Computing and ICT. The teachers will be well-verse in the subject matter. The lessons are thought-provoking, and they have established a good relationship between them and the students.
• British Values
The course in British Values covers such topic as democracy, the rule of law, and individual liberty. The other subjects include mutual respect to others of different faith and beliefs as well as others without faith.

The teacher’s responsibility is to ensure that students get taught self-knowledge, self-esteem, and self-confidence. Additionally, students should get taught to discern right from wrong. They should also respect the civil and criminal law of England.
Moreover, teachers should instruct students to accept ownership of their behavior, to be a self-starter, and to teach them social responsibility. Students should also show respect for the British Government. Additionally, teachers should teach the student how to have respect for everyone as well as the law.
Schools will not get an acceptable Kingsdale Foundation School performance ratings if they do not cover the course on British Values. This information gets listed in the 2014 handbook.
Business D&T Intro
In this course, teachers will cover business design and technology. Students would focus on developing projects as well as creating them. They would do this with the use of cognitive modeling. This means that students will use computer science to solve human problems as well as mental tasks. The model can get used to simulate and predict human behavior.
Computing & ICT
• 7th Grade
For seventh graders, they will learn what takes place inside a computer and how it stores data. Furthermore, students will learn how the computer compiles images and how the computer receives its instructions from a human being. During the completion of the course, students will get a beginning course in programming via text-based language Python.
• 8th Grade
Students in the eighth grade will get a more elaborate teaching on the concepts presented in the 7th grade. Additionally, they will gain more knowledge of how the computer works. They will get more instructions on the text-based program language Python. They will learn how to use the program, and also the writing of a more sophisticated program. Students will learn how the program gets used.
Moreover, students will learn the history of computing, Rasberry Pi, and computer graphics. Additionally, they will learn animation, web design, and computer programming from scratch.
In conclusion, some of the classes that get covered in the foundation school include British Values, Business D&T Intro, and Computing and ICT. The course in British Values covers such topic as democracy, the rule of law, and individual liberty. Some of the other subjects include mutual respect to others of different faith and beliefs as well as others without faith.
There is a course in Business D&T Intro where students learn about business design and technology. They will also learn about what takes place inside a computer and how it stores data. They will also get to program via text-based language Python.
