Each school must be able to develop a curriculum that responds to the changing needs of specific cohorts. There are, however, numerous opportunities for joint planning across the MAT schools. This increases creativity and reduces workload. Vulnerable groups of students can be brought together from all MAT schools to work together and learn from each other.
Teachers from all our schools (primary and secondary) come together to ensure we are all marking and assessing in the same way to the same standard. This not only ensures that pupils from different schools are marked fairly and assessed accurately; it also ensures that there is a smooth transition to the secondary school system.
All schools have a common assessment system that allows direct data comparison between each school. In Primary FLiC is used and in secondary, the assessment platform is Go4Schools.
