Curriculum Organisation

Hall Green Junior School has developed a personalised learning approach aimed at developing the whole child around our Four Core Skills. Each child has a PLP - a Personalised Learning Plan - which is shared with parents and informs the teacher's planning and the child's learning.

The work is organised into Modules, each lasting for 6 weeks (approximately half a term). When possible the work is taught in linked topics but where necessary work is taught in separate subjects. The Modules are designed so that the National Curriculum is covered in a way which meets the needs and abilities of the children. They are also designed to be interesting and exciting.

Children are assessed by staff on an on-going basis with some formal testing each year. This information allows us to gain a useful general picture of each child's ability and attainment and helps us build the PLPs to match work accordingly.

School works to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, aiming to educate the whole child. All children belong to a team in School and will take part in activities to earn pints for their team. The challenges are around developing strategic thinking, being healthy and developing wider learning skills.
