The roadmap diagram on the following page sets out the route that we expect pupils to take through our Key Stage 3 curriculum.
The roadmap shows the sequence of units covered in Year 7 to Year 9, broken down into a half-term structure to support planning and assessment points.
All units are compulsory components of Key Stage 3 teaching and results in a core base of knowledge to begin Key Stage 4.
The curriculum has been carefully designed to continuously interleave content, enabling pupils to revisit prior knowledge without having a spiral curriculum.
The curriculum focuses on teaching in a sequence that provides building blocks for pupils to access future topics.
