Whole School Curriculum Overview
The units of work that we have developed for each year group are based meet the expectations of the National Curriculum and are structured using Chris Quigley’s Essentials Curriculum. This is a curriculum that promotes a mastery of learning. In practice, what this means is that lessons are carefully designed to ensure that there is a revisiting of facts, skills and concepts in a carefully thought out sequence. We use milestones within the curriculum to assess where children are according to age-related expectations. Our assessment procedures allow us to understand the depth of children’s learning not simply what they have covered and then retained at one moment in time.
