The curriculum we will offer will still be broad and balanced however opportunities for Literacy and Maths links, in wider curriculum subjects, will be made to maximise opportunities for learning to be embedded.
The taught curriculum for each year group will be carefully planned ensuring it meets needs. The previous summer term curriculum will be dove tailed into the current autumn curriculum to ensure a recovery approach is taken and not just the teaching of the missed curriculum. This ensures children are 'catching up' and not just 'keeping up' as they would always be 6 months behind.
In September, trackers from the previous year will be used to identify starting points and gaps in learning. This, alongside a HCAT year on a page documents will be used to identify missed learning from the summer term. Where necessary, in certain year groups, 'mini' baseline assessments will be used to identify particular areas where pupils have forgotten or misunderstood key concepts, to ensure that new material being covered builds on secure foundations. This data will also be used to identify pupils who would benefit from additional catch-up support.
In order to further promote progress, effective formative assessment, marking and feedback and adult interaction within lessons is firmly embedded into our approach to teaching and learning. All pupils are supported to develop, progress and move their learning forward through support, questioning and feedback. Pupils demonstrate the impact this has on improving their learning through editing and response.
