Curriculum

At Moor Green, we aim to provide our children with a broad, balanced, enriched and engaging curriculum. We concentrate on the acquisition of skills through rich and varied learning experiences, depth of learning and appropriate challenge for all abilities.  ​

 

Intent, Implementation and Impact

Intent: We have a clear intent about the curriculum content we expect children to learn and the sequence in which children encounter the curriculum.  Subjects are mapped out as individual disciplines, with transferable concepts that enable children to make links between different subjects.  ​

 

Implementation:  Our teaching, assessment and feedback leads to long-term learning. Through the curriculum, pupils revisit and recall previously learned knowledge because it is ‘baked into’ the curriculum planning. Our sequence of content enables our pupils to make progress and provides them with the knowledge they need for subsequent learning.​

 

Impact: Our assessment system assesses the pupils’ knowledge and understanding of what they have been taught. Pupil achievement will be assessed using progression and destinations data, recognising that good outcomes are not just measured in qualifications but in how successfully pupils are developed as well-rounded citizens.

Read Write Inc

Read Write Inc. Phonics is a highly successful literacy programmes for 4-13 year-olds created by Ruth Miskin and published by Oxford University Press. The training and support from Ruth Miskin Training, rated Outstanding by the Department for Education, ensure the programme has the best chance of success in schools.
