Implementation – How is our curriculum delivered?
Our curriculum at Pennine View incorporates all parts of the school day; we recognise that these times are important opportunities for all our staff to teach our pupils the skills that they need to be successful when they leave Pennine View.
SMSC underpins our curriculum and permeates through our curriculum and together with equal opportunities is an integral feature of all aspects of the life of our school; of the formal curriculum, the informal curriculum and the ‘hidden’ curriculum; it is implicit in teaching strategies and approaches, the quality of relationships and the ethos of our school.
Teachers present subject matter clearly, promoting appropriate discussion about the subject matter being taught. They check pupils’ understanding systematically, identify misconceptions accurately and provide clear, direct feedback; they respond and adapt their teaching as necessary without unnecessarily elaborate or differentiated approaches.
Teachers create a stimulating learning environment that promotes focus pupil progress. The content, sequence of learning, resources and materials selected reflect our ambitious intentions for our Pennine View Curriculum. Our Pennine View Curriculum is coherently planned and is sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning and employment. There are subject-specific progression models in place that focus on progression through the content to be learned.
Our Pennine View Curriculum is reviewed regularly in response to feedback from pupils and staff and in response to real life events.
