HOW DO WE MEASURE THE IMPACT OF OUR CURRICULUM?
All our curriculum subjects include opportunities to revisit prior learning. At the start of each unit, teachers identify key learning for children to acquire. We call this ‘sticky knowledge’. Pupils reflect on their learning from a unit and complete a quiz to elicit if the ‘sticky knowledge’ has stuck!
There are a number of ways how we measure the impact that teaching has had on our pupils:
- Collection of Pupil Voice, Parent Voice and Staff Voice – testimonial evidence
- Learning Conversations with the children
- Holding exhibitions – showcasing learning in a given subject
- ‘Show and Tell’ Assembly – getting children talking about their learning
- Scrutiny of pupils’ work
- Observations of learning in lessons
- Link Governor Visits
Pupils also complete assessments each term for reading, writing, maths and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG). We use these assessment outcomes to measure the progress made over the term and identify key areas to revisit and possible interventions that maybe required.
