Research considered when designing our curriculum includes:
Load Theory – to ensure our curriculum is designed to build complex
schema as they progress through the curriculum, and is implemented through
effective learning strategies (retrieval practice, spaced practice,
interleaving, elaboration, dual coding and concrete examples).
teaching – teacher adapting their lesson to the ever-changing needs
of their pupils to ensure there is always progression from prior knowledge.
Mindset Theory – pupils experience opportunities to develop their knowledge
and understanding with no limit placed on the levels of attainment and
progress. Our pupils will grow into resilient learners.
Principles of Instruction – to ensure our curriculum is implemented in an
effective manner, teachers present new material in small steps and students
have opportunities to practice and develop.
