Creating a Continuous Learning Pathway from Year 6 and Beyond

Who is it for?   

All Year 6 teachers, primary subject curriculum leaders, secondary Year 7 teachers, secondary subject leaders, teaching assistants.

What are the benefits?    

This programme focuses on curriculum planning to ensure continuity and progression from KS2 to KS3 in order to accelerate student progress in Year 7.

With this knowledge, teachers at KS3 can develop teaching strategies that recognise previous work, and adopt strategies to deliver topics in an original way that build upon and extend students’ prior experiences.

This course will ensure that primary and secondary school teachers understand the curriculum content, how students learn and how topics are delivered at KS2 and KS3. This will ensure that the curriculum is joined up so that students are taught content and skills once, avoiding duplication, and to ensure consistency in approach, to avoid teaching concepts in contradictory ways.

Throughout this programme, teachers will gain a greater understanding of the principles of continuity and progression, and how this might be achieved, without leading to repetition of content. It will ensure a greater sharing of good practice in teaching and planning of the KS2 and KS3 curriculum.

This course will provide the opportunity to spend two afternoons in either a primary or a secondary school and will encourage sharing of student work and schemes of learning between primary and secondary school teachers.

The intention is for two sessions to be delivered by a primary colleague and two sessions by a secondary colleague to ensure that both key stages are covered effectively.
