Curriculum Updates

Our curriculum is currently under review to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our children's learning

We know that remote learning is no substitute to children learning in the classroom alongside their peers, supported by teachers and learning professionals.

Following curriculum coverage checks of what has been taught in school and through remote learning,  we identified the need to undertake a full curriculum review. This is especially important with a rolling curriculum programme (Year A and Year B curriculum) and mixed age classes.

Staff have worked/are continuning to work together to:

  • ensure full curriculum coverage from the National Curriculum and capture missed learning
  • develop, review and rework our ‘sticky knowledge’ (shared through ‘Sticky Knowledge Organisers) to enable subsequent learning to ensure the connection of old knowledge to new knowledge
  • Map our MAT-wide skills progression to enable children to use their broad 'sticky' knowledge base to explore, practise and masters skills to allow them to apply this knowledge in a meaningful way
  • Plan experiences (including visitors into school, virtually and trips) to enrich and complement learning and to provide context to children’s learning. 
  • Adapt and review our specific subject documentation (including intent, implementation and impact) to ensure integrity of subjects taught through the thematic approach
  • Adapt our assessment and robust monitoring system for the wider curriculum subjects to match the new curriculum content, through the intent, implentation and intended impact.
