What is a Curriculum Progression Model?
The curriculum is a progression model – a journey which students take in order to get better at each subject and develop their knowledge.
Like a race, a child progresses (moves) through a purposefully designed and rigorous race route with the teacher as their expert coach who trains, inspires, motivates and challenges the students to excel. Each part of the route is important and is to be mastered expertly, using assessment to measure how successfully knowledge and skills are developing. A successful curriculum is what that is a narrative – that takes prior learning and builds upon it, so that new knowledge can be understood and framed within a bigger picture.
Our teachers have skillfully created subject curriculums, just as architects of a race track would, to ensure that your child has a knowledge rich and diverse curriculum which has both breadth and depth.
