Core Subjects

Tier One subjects are based heavily on the National Curriculum Programme of Study and the statutory end of key stage frameworks. The school also uses the Target Tracker statements to monitor pupils’ progress between the key stages, so these are also be used to form learning objectives.


Tier One subjects are tracked very closely, so teachers ensure that there is evidence that these statements have been secured by the pupils in their class.


For Maths, the school uses the White Rose Maths scheme as a starting point for teaching and planning. This scheme is in line with the national curriculum and the Target Tracker statements.


However, end of key stage year groups ensure that the full curriculum has been covered before the statutory assessment period begins.


Information about the teaching strategies and planning documents used for the Tier One subjects will be found in the relevant school policies and leadership documents.
