We are very proud of the curriculum at Brook Street School. We feel it reflects the needs of our pupils across a range of subjects and across the wider spectrum of their education.
Once a new vision for the school had been established in 2018-19 we engaged with all of the school's stakeholders to ask one very simple but essential question:
What do we want for OUR children?
It is the answer to this question which has guided us in establishing a new curriculum and to the on-going work to judge its impact.
The document below is a detailed explanation of how we organise, deliver and evaluate our curriculum; the Intent, Implementation and Impact. The links below this document will take you to additional pages which will give you more information about different elements of our curriculum.
The implementation of our curriculum is supported by long and medium term plans. The document below sets out the long term plan across years 1 to 6 for all aspects of the taught curriculum. Medium term plans are available via the link further down.
Long term plans - This is the second version of this document. The long term plan was first established in 2018-19 with an intention to amend and adjust it after the first full year of its implementation. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic both the 2019-20 and the 2020-21 academic year saw significant disruption and we were prevented from delivering a full planned year of our curriculum. We amended our long term plan to reflect what we had learnt but will need to make further adjustments once we have completed the 2021-22 academic year.
Medium term plans - These are the plans which reflect how year groups intend to deliver of the long term plan. These are the working documents which inform any amendments to the long term plan. During the 2021-22 academic year each term is planned and then reviewed to ensure we are meeting our curriculum intent and if not, what changes need to be made.
