Teachers plan using the 2014 National Curriculum as their guideline in conjunction with Target Tracker (our online assessment tool) to ensure progression.
In addition to this, schemes of work have been both written and bought in for certain subjects. For example, Maths-No problem! is used in Maths from Year 1-6 and R.E. is taught using the Essex agreed syllabus.
A Long Term planning map outlines the topics and texts to be covered throughout the year across each year group enabling curriculum coverage and progression to be evidenced.
Medium term plans show the coverage of objectives and skills for that half or full term in each year group.
Weekly plans are written for maths, English and the foundation subjects, and adapted through daily planning to allow for alterations to be made in the pace and direction of the learning based on the teachers assessment of each lesson. (See assessment policy). Other lessons will have planning but this may be less detailed and more focused on outcomes.
We always try to keep you informed about our learning and what is going on in school by sending home letters, if you would like a reminder of what is being taught each half term please see our current curriculum.
