Working definition of the curriculum “The curriculum is a framework for setting out the aims of a programme of education, including the knowledge and skills to be gained at each stage (intent); for translating that framework over time into a structure and narrative, within an institutional context (implementation) and for evaluating what knowledge and skills pupils have gained against expectations (impact/achievement).” Ofsted
Holy Trinity Church School’s Curriculum intent is underpinned by our Christian vision and runs alongside the Bath and Wells Multi-Academy Trust’s ‘Curriculum Principles and Curriculum Intent’
Together in God’s Promises, Goodness and Love
Coverage, Content, Sequence and Structure:
Layer 1: Subject Grouping
Holy Trinity’s Curriculum is broken into 8 distinct areas which each have their own policy outlining their Intent, Implementation and Impact.
Layer 2: Curriculum Skills Overview:
Each year group has an overview of the skills that the children are required to learn for each subject. PLease see each year groups curriculum page.
Layer 3: Phase planning, Unit Overviews and Individual Lesson plans
The skills that are identified in the Curriculum Skills Overview documents are used to create planning that enables the children to achieve the ideals and intent of our curriculum
Phase Planning documents are used to plan topics that Integrate subjects together and allow for cross-curricular links.
Unit plan and Individual Lesson plans are used to plan all other curriculum areas.
Each Term, a curriculum leaflet is uploaded onto our website which outlines each year groups curriculum overview for parents to access.
