Curriculum

Curriculum Design - Highwood’s school curriculum has been designed to make sure our children are able to meet the school’s vision using the concept that we collectively refer to as our 3D curriculum (based on the work completed by Clare Sealy.)

This concept is planned through:

Vertical links - planned links between topics, concepts,                                                                      vocabulary etc in each year group.                                                              

Horizontal links - planned links between topics, concepts, vocabulary etc in subjects across the whole school.  

Diagonal Links - planned links between topics, concepts, vocabulary etc in multiple subjects areas in multiple year groups.

                                                       

As a school we have established the composite knowledge required for each subject area (The Big Ideas).  This has then been organised into a progressive model of developing the multiple component parts through and across the whole school curriculum (Schemes of Work). 

We have styled this as our 3D curriculum so that knowledge is built on in: year groups (horizontal links); subjects (vertical links) and between topics in a variety of year groups (diagonal links) thus developing a 3D curriculum to aid knowing more and remembering more.
