KS4/5 Core Knowledge

For the topics of learning within each subject we have identified the key knowledge and skills which students need to secure to give them a firm foundation on which to build further learning. We refer to these as core knowledge and it is our intention that every student secures the core knowledge to make outstanding progress through the curriculum. 

We believe that the form in which feedback and assessment takes place must be specifically related to the individual subject therefore subject teachers use a range of strategies to assess students’ progress using the core knowledge. 

We have included the subject core knowledge for the topics of learning covered during the autumn/spring term. You can support your son/daughter’s progress by regularly discussing the core knowledge with them to help them to remember what they have learnt. To assist you in supporting your son/daughter with any areas for development we have signposted resources and links for each subject.
