Why does our curriculum look like it does?

We believe the following factors should be incorporated into curriculum design:

1.     the importance of subjects as individual disciplines

2.     using the curriculum to address disadvantage and provide equality of opportunities

3.   regular curriculum review

4.   using the curriculum as the progression mode

5.    intelligent use of assessment to inform curriculum design

6.    retrieval of core knowledge within the curriculum

7.   distributed curriculum leadership

Our approach is like this:

  • Because we know that some of the children in our school have limited access to first hand experiences
  • Because research tells us that ‘deep/profound learning’ takes place when pupils are challenged through higher order thinking and problem solving,
  • Because Research tells us the importance of feedback in order to improve
  • Because research tells us that children learn best when learning is simple and clear


What should planning incorporate?

  • breadth of study from the National Curriculum
  • place a high emphasis on vocabulary in all subject areas
  • lots of opportunities for a visit or visitor in order to make learning relevant and exciting
  • place reading as the core driver for the curriculum
  • payattention to WHAT KNOWLEDGE pupils need to learn well in an individual subject area
  • By ensuring Assessment for Learning principles are embedded throughout our curriculum and that learning begins with establishing what pupils already know
