Curriculum 2020/2021

The Curriculum at Deerhurst and Apperley is:

BALANCED: by promoting the intellectual, moral, spiritual aesthetic, creative emotional and physical development of each child. This intent is aligned to objectives in school and national policy objectives. Staff have a shared understanding of intent, implementation and impact and consistent teaching and marking methods are used (Implementation) to ensure impact on pupils.

RIGOROUS: the curriculum takes into account disciplinary habits of mind – disciplinary specific, powerful ways of thinking that are developed through sustained engagement with the discipline. For example, inverse operations in maths, cause and effect in science and provenance and context in history. This is all part of the implementation of the framework itself.

COHERENT: the curriculum is designed to promote the development of capabilities across subjects – for example, children learn about graphs in maths before it is needed in science. The design of our curriculum implementation will lead to impact through this coherence.

VERTICALLY INTEGRATED: it is clear how material taught in one year builds on what was learned in previous years, and how it leads on to subsequent learning. School clearly sets out the objectives each year and they are made clear at the implementation of the curriculum and the intent of how objectives will be transferred into processes, such as subject coverage, medium term plans and termly plans. The methods then developed in the classroom with objectives and marking will then reinforce implementation.

APPROPRIATE: the curriculum provides challenge for students when it is implemented and is planned for impact when study is ongoing or complete. That it meets the needs of all learners.

RELEVANT: the curriculum will be relevant and take into account the interest, needs and wishes of children, but within a framework of informed choice in respect of pedagogy and curriculum. School make clear objectives from national intent of the curriculum which are transferred clearly into implementation within school processes which lead to outcomes (Impact) of the school objectives and those of the children.
