Chris Quigley ‘Essentials Curriculum’ provides the base for developing learning in this subject area and includes:
- Essential Characteristics which are the characteristics required to be successful and to achieve within each subject.
- Essential Opportunities which lists the content of what we teach.
- Essential Learning Objective which identifies and defines the learning objectives which are essential to support a culture of deep learning for all our children.
- Essentials for Progress which lists the milestones within the curriculum which will enable us to measure progress.
Children are expected to reach milestone 1 by the end of Year 2, milestone 2 by the end of Year 4 and milestone 3 by the end of Year 6. The milestones use the National Curriculum as a reference point but in most subjects are far more ambitious supporting our high expectations and opportunities for challenge.
