Implementation

We have a planned progression of learning which builds on prior knowledge and prepares children for the next stage in their development and towards clearly defined end points.

Our curriculum management system (Maestro) and the resources offered within it (Cornerstones) enable subject leaders to structure the sequence of learning into a logical systematic progression for all pupils to acquire the intended knowledge and skills.

Teachers will use the progression of key concepts, knowledge and skills as prescribed in the curriculum plans to plan and deliver lessons that reflect the curriculum drivers and foster a love of learning for every child.
