At Leverton Church of England Academy, teachers are responsible for ensuring the best possible learning opportunities are planned, delivered and monitored for all pupils. Excellent subject knowledge and pedagogy is crucial in maintaining consistently high levels of pupil achievement and together, as a staff team, our pupils receive the very best.
Our broad and balanced curriculum is underpinned from The Cornerstones Curriculum, providing children with a knowledge and skills filled education taken from the National Curriculum. We adapt this curriculum accordingly to suit our pupils ensuring essential skills are embedded throughout our topics.
Classes have an over-arching topic each half term, which begins with a ‘hook day’ to engage and immerse the children in a memorable experience related to their topic. Teachers plan lessons using Cornerstones topic planning and resources to meet the National Curriculum objectives across all subject areas. Teachers may use Cornerstones lesson ideas as a starting point, but are encouraged to add their own creative ideas and adapt the teaching and learning to meet the children’s individual needs. Children’s skills are developed throughout these chosen topics as teachers provide opportunities for children to: Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express the skills they have learnt – These opportunities will support their independence.
