ATLP Curriculum

We follow the ATLP curriculum for most our wider curriculum subjects - Science, History, Geography, Art, DT, MFL.   

School leaders across the partnership work collaboratively to develop and embed an exciting, engaging curriculum constructed through four core principles:

  • The growing understanding of cognitive science and it’s impact on pupil outcomes
  • The importance of building and applying knowledge
  • Collaborative resourcing and strategic planning to impact positively on teacher workload and well-being
  • Addressing social disadvantage and ensuring equality across the MAT, considering our cultural capital

There are 5 pillars which underpin all planning, teaching and learning:

  1. Teaching the 'right' learning - planning for and teaching tricky concepts.
  2. Development of schemata - ordering and sequencing learning in a logical way.
  3. Spaced practice - signposting and re-teaching key concepts.
  4. Retrieval practice - building in retrieval as this process strengthens learning.
  5. The application of knowledge - Applying key concepts and skills in varying contexts.

We use J2e for our Computing curriculum and follow the Internet Legends and Internet Citizens approach for e-safety. This ensures progression and consistency in computing and e-safety across the key stages, thus ensuring opportunities for retrieval and spaced practice across the years.
