At Summit our overarching curriculum aims
Schools will have additional, individual curriculum intent according to their ethos and context.
Schools will map their curricula within and across subject areas, mindful of the foundations of the primary curriculum, and the future demands of further and higher education. Careful and intelligent consideration will be given to the selection of interleaved knowledge and skills across five years of learning. Our ‘Excellence in Teaching’ model of pedagogy, rooted in direct instruction, will support profound learning across a coherent curriculum experience for students.
Schools will collaborate and share practice, planning and resources to reduce workload, and will be free to adapt their own curricula with respect to their particular context and needs.
“The curriculum is not just one of the many things a head has responsibility for –it defines the purposes of a school and the journey a school wants pupils to take.”
