Curriculum Development

In 2020, we reviewed and developed our curriculum and we continue to review, reflect and improve upon it regularly.
We went through a thorough process as staff to evaluate our current curriculum, considering carefully what we teach, when we teach it and why we teach it then. 
This page gives a summary of the school's rigorous work in-line with the school's vision to further enhance the school's rich curriculum. 
The Process:
We started by summarising what our curriculum should be built on:
We recalled our vision and the 4 Shelford Star values. We used this to answer:
What do we want our Shelford Curriculum to be?
After this, we grouped the curriculum desires into categories:
We considered our pupils, and thought carefully about what they need to develop next in-line with the school's vision.
We used all of the above to consider how our pupils learn best and what we should consider for our curriculum implementation. 
This then fed into us developing the 6 threads - which you can read more about here
