Also available are our Medium Term Curriculum Plans(MTCP). These have been developed by the Curriculum Leaders, based on the Programmes of Study for each Key Stage, taken from the Statutory Orders National Curriculum 2000. All curricular areas are covered with the addition of PSHE/Citizenship and R.E.
The MTCP follow a four year topic cycle at Key Stages 1 and 2 and a two year cycle at Key Stage 3 & 4 and a 3 year cycle at key stage 5.Each Topic usually covers half a term work although there occasions where planning takes a whole term.
There are usually two suggested activities for higher and lower attaining pupils which would be found in a school for SLD and PMLD pupils. The plans include Learning Outcomes (what pupils know can do and understand) and are written as performance statements. These statements can form part of a pupils IEP.
It is important to read the Curriculum Guidelines ' Design and Delivery of the Curriculum' to appreciate the context of the MTCP within our school.
