School Improvement

Y5-Y8 Continuity Workgroup

The project aims to improve communication between Key Stages 2 and 3 by taking an aspect of the mathematics curriculum or a pedagogical approach as the focus for the work. Teachers from different phases work together to develop a consistent approach to their chosen aspect through discussion, joint lesson design and delivery, observation and the development of documentation to support continuity. As a result, channels of communication are established and there is an increased focus on curriculum and pedagogical continuity at key transition points which supports children as they move from KS2 to KS3.

Primary and Secondary school teachers, preferably 2 teachers of varying experience from each participating school.
