Our Curriculum Impact: what is the impact of the curriculum on the children?
The main source of impact will always remain the quality and breadth of work seen in pupil’s books and the learning environment. As an Academy, we are striving to raise the expectation of learners and the quality of work they produce from a rounded and connected curriculum. We ensure there are always opportunities for application of learning within and across subject disciplines.
The impact of our curriculum should also be measured by assessment procedures, which allow us to measure outcomes against all schools nationally:
· EYFS % of pupils achieving a ‘Good level of development’ (GLD)
· Phonics Screening Test at the end of Year 1
· End of KS1 % of children working towards or at the expected standard and at Greater depth in reading, writing and maths
· End of KS2 % of children working towards or at the expected standard and at Greater depth in reading, writing and maths
Furthermore, the impact will be measured by how effectively it helps our pupils develop into well-rounded individuals who embody our values and carry with them the knowledge, skills and attitudes, which will make them lifelong learners, and valuable future citizens.
