Every phase has a term of each discipline. The term is broken down into two blocks of 12 weeks. In the ďŹ rst block the focus is learning the skills and the second block is application and retrieval of skills through a performance. There is a clear progression from nursery through to phase 4. Some skills are fundamental and retrieved every year, whilst others are age speciďŹ c and developed over their time at Fulbridge.

Pedagogy All disciplines are taught through explicit instruction. Specialist teachers break down and model the skills to the children, who then repeat and practice this.

Each skill is retrieved throughout every lesson and then applied during their performance lessons, where they synergise the three.

Performance lessons are taught in the same way. Call and response is used to learn music and lyrics. Modelling is used to teach dance and all children have to learn lines from a script. By the time they ďŹ nish Fulbridge some children will have learnt how to operate the technical equipment and take responsibility for this during the show.

Formative Strategies Instant feedback for the teacher is received through a range of questioning and assessment for learning strategies, to check pupil Instant feedback

understanding. In addition, children receive instant feedback of their own learning through marking their own work. The instant feedback is used to inform teachers of the pace of the lesson, the scaffolding required and future learning.

At the start of each lesson children are asked questions around four areas of maths that have been previously learnt. This informs teaching staff of the knowledge and skills that have been retained and provides opportunities for further guidance or scaffolding.

Retrieval

Retrieval of previous learning is also encouraged throughout lessons. Retrieval practice informs upcoming teaching and learning. At several points within the year, a maths lesson will be dedicated to retrieving information that has been learnt in the previous weeks. The answers recorded from this then inform a gap ďŹ ll session to reteach areas that were less secure within the class.

In every lesson, teachers and staff will record speciďŹ c notes about positive learning and misconception in the classroom. This will then Feedback Booklets

be used to inform future summative assessment strategies including moderation and teacher assessments. As well as this, the content from feedback booklets is used to plan effective gap ďŹ ll lessons and inform which children require pre teach before future learning.


Summative Strategies

Teacher Assessment

Teacher Assessments are recorded each term based on a collation of formative and summative assessments. These assessments are a quick and easy check to whether the children is still on track to meet the end of year expectations, if they are below this or above this, Final teacher assessment data is reported to parents at the end of the academic year.

Our curriculum is standardised against national performance at three points in the year. The assessment is delivered in the form of a

Standardised Test

standardised test similar to support the teacher assessments and predictions for the end of Key Stage assessments. This data is reported to parents at parents evenings.

Standard Attainment Tests are sat at the end of Key Stage 1 and 2 to compare school performance across the country. Children will be SATS

judged as working below the expected standard, at the expected standard or working at greater depth and results will be reported to parents and on the government website.
