Curriculum Implementation

Curriculum Implementation  

We run a geography/history topic-based approach to our programme of study. We try to establish links across subjects (where appropriate) to help pupils make connections and apply a cognitive fluency across learning. We try to match Science, Art, D&T and Music to our topics, whilst retaining a focus on the progression of skills in these subjects. PE; PSHE and SRE are taught as discreet subjects. We teach French in MFL.

 

Whilst there are some connections between subjects, we also recognise specific learning, knowledge and skills within discreet subjects when applicable.

 

We are proud of our diverse community and want to ensure that we tackle social inequalities wherever we can.
 

Therefore we will always see if we plan for the following:

  1. Choose a range of authors and books written by a diverse range of people
  2. Provide inspiration for our pupils through women and me who have pioneered achievements in society.
  3. Encourage a consideration for a future by thinking about the environment and our world
  4. Ensure that our local area is considered and its history and geography and how we can use this knowledge to unify our community
  5. We provide experiences outside the classroom to enhance pupils’ learning
  6. Utilise our local community to support us as a school (for example, our links with the local Doctor’s Surgery and allotment work)

 

Through a partnership of a knowledge and a skills-based, topic-led approach, we will ensure that:

  1. The skills of reading allow comprehension which develops knowledge
  2. Skills are dependent on knowledge and some knowledge is dependent on skills
  3. Knowledge is generative
  4. Knowledge empowers

 

As staff,  have 4 curriculum teams at Manor Lodge who help to plan, monitor and evaluate the delivery of our curriculum. Each team has a designated teacher for a subject. 
These are as follows:

1) STEM and Computing Team (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Computing)

2) The Arts and Culture Team (Music, Art and English)

3) The World Around Us Team  (History, Geography, French and Religious Education)

4) The Health, Well-being and Inclusion Team (PSHE, RSE, Mental Health, Mindfulness and PE)
