The Curriculum at MDCP

Curriculum Delivery at Market Deeping Community Primary School

The curriculum is everything our children experience in school.  It is based on the National Curriculum and covers the required framework this sets out and more.  We aim for children to develop skills and knowledge, to be able to do more and know more from the activities and lessons they undertake.  Our INTENT is what we are trying to achieve through our curriculum and is set out in our subject overviews and progression documents and our Curriculum Intent documents plus the 'Topic Schemas' that ensure parents understand what we are covering each half term.  The IMPLEMENTATION is how we deliver our curriculum and the IMPACT is the difference our curriculum is making.  Our curriculum is always developing and improving and will respond to the needs of our pupils and our community so that we make the most of opportunities for children as they arise.  Our Knowledge Maps give detail of specific knowledge to be taught each lesson.  Our Progression Documents for each subject set out how disciplinary conceptual understanding and skills build over time.

Behind the Half-Termly Overviews it a number of documents.  The class teachers use the KNOWLEDGE MAP documents for medium term plans.  These include the Learning Intentions for each half term - what we want children to know in each session and the skills we want them to develop.  

Curriculum leaders oversee the KNOWLEDGE MAPS and the Subject Progression documents.  

Each subject has an action plan for the academic year which subject leads monitor.
