Systematic Curriculum Design

Specific Knowledge

Knowledge in every subject is designed in specific detail and chosen for its cultural capital value and schema development.


Geography, History, Religious Education and Science are systematically designed around declarative knowledge (content specific knowledge and concepts).
These concepts are revisited over time, cumulatively developing knowledge and deepening understanding.


Art, Design Technology, Music and PE are systematically designed around procedural knowledge (procedural 'techniques' and strategies) as well including content specific knowledge.

Computing and Languages blend concept and technique approaches together.


Outcomes are skills developed through the knowledge being learnt rather than a discrete objective.
