Medium Term Plans
Medium term plans determine the objectives, activities and expected outcomes for each area within a subject whether through subject specific lessons or cross curricular themes.
The activities are designed to meet the needs of the pupils and adaptation to l need is evident. The use of alternative and augmentative communication, assistive technology, braille, software such as Grid or Clicker, multi-sensory approaches, structured imagery, concrete apparatus enable pupils to access learning activities fully.
The plans are devised to introduce and build on the knowledge and concepts that pupils need to know for further accreditation or enrichment. Feedback is prevalent within every lesson, to immediately address misconceptions and to elicit deeper thinking.
Pupils are assessed continuously:
- formative feedback is given to facilitate further learning through exploration individually and in groups, and
- summative assessment is undertaken and progress tracked through the school’s assessment system linked to the curriculum plans
Pupils at John Chilton School progress well within the pathways and this can be seen in their My Achievements journals in primary, or the Tutor Time folders in secondary.
Pupils in year 11 gain Functional Skills accreditation in English, maths and ICT in the purple and red pathways.
All pupils demonstrate progress in confidence, motivation and independence.
