Overview of All Saints' Curriculum
This year, one of our main areas of focus across the school has been the re-design of our curriculum. The 2019 Ofsted framework transitioned away from a focus on maths and English and towards the wider curriculum. It stated that the curriculum be broad and balanced, with teaching focusing on a wide range of subjects with clear themes and progression running throughout.
We have planned a new sequence of topics to ensure clear coverage of the whole National Curriculum. Within each of the eleven subjects, we then looked to map the progression of knowledge and skills from Reception to Year 6. These progression maps are exciting for all who access them and a way for middle-leaders to have a clear understanding of their subject. We want to be able to demonstrate our new, broad curriculum to the school and evidence the links between topics.
We will be teaching our afternoons in ‘blocks’ – each week we focus on one curriculum subject in the afternoons to ensure deep understanding of new skills and concepts.
