Our curriculum

Curriculum updates
Last year as part of our School Development plan we began to review and redesign our curriculum. We started this during our January PD day where we began to work on our curriculum statement and discussed what our curriculum has to offer pupils at Dale Hall. We looked at what a broad and balanced curriculum looks like in reality. We reviewed the National Curriculum requirements for each Key Stage and reviewed coverage across our school. We looked at good practice in other schools and worked through the Ofsted Guidance too. 
At Dale Hall we are well on the way to developing an immersive text led curriculum, focusing predominantly on skills rather than knowledge. We will be continuing to use the Power of Reading to ensure that all topics are vocabulary rich and centered around by a high quality text. 
This year curriculum continues to be on our school development plan. All subject leaders have now created a skills/knowledge overview for their subject and have reflected on what their subject has to offer pupils at Dale Hall. Have a look at their individual subject pages to find out more.
This term subject leaders are working on consistency in their subject. They will be monitoring the way their subjects are planned for, delivered and assessed. 
You can also have a look at our class pages for our up to date Medium Term plans and parent leaflets.
