How will we ensure the curriculum meets the needs of all pupils?

Our curriculum will be designed to be accessible for all pupils. Each topic and individual lesson will be adapted to cater for individual needs and there will be assessment challenges aimed at a basic, enhanced and deeper knowledge.

Part of the rationale for this approach is that it provides a range of different opportunities for all abilities, while still accessing the same topics. Across topics, assessment opportunities will be based on the following:

  • Basic (remembering)
  • Advanced (knowing)
  • Deep (reasoning)

This will ensure that teachers can provide assessment opportunities for a range of abilities, adapting work to ensure that all pupils, including those with SEND, can access topic areas and achieve at their own pace.

Part of our motivation for giving adequate coverage to all curriculum areas is to ensure that there are opportunities for pupils to express themselves; achieve; enhance talents, in areas where they might shine e.g. art, science, history, PE.

Teachers will use a range of resources, including interactive displays and working walls, alongside individual resources and scaffolding techniques to help all pupils access the curriculum.

Interventions will be in place to support pupils, where necessary.
