We believe that the most effective way of getting students ready for a rapidly changing world is to give students a broad education, covering a wide range of disciplines and subjects. The comprehensive knowledge and skills developed by students through exposure to a wide-ranging curriculum will give them the flexibility to adapt successfully in our fast-paced world. This emphasis on breadth at Kings Langley School can be seen in the importance given to the extensive range of subjects studied at KS3 right up until the end of Year 9.
Please see below Curriculum Maps for years 7, 8 and 9 at Kings Langley School. At Kings Langley School we want our parents to take an active role in helping their son/daughter to develop a deep understanding of subjects. In response and to help parents to understand more about what their children are learning at school we have created a tool for all to use which can be downloaded below.
The maps are divided into the following sections:
- Content: Acquiring powerful knowledge is an end in itself and we want to ensure that there is a coherent sequence through the subject and that knowledge can be remembered, not merely encountered. Knowledge at each stage is a foundation for the next.
- Skills: the application of that knowledge in making sense of the world.
- Key Questions: each unit will pose some fundamental questions that excite curiosity and resonate beyond the immediate lesson content.
- Assessment: How teachers will judge if the knowledge and skills have been learned.
- Literacy / Numeracy / Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development / Character: How this unit supports students to build cross-curricular numeracy and literacy skills and also to be reflective thinkers, appreciating values, morals and ethics. Links are also made to the six traits of Character development that we promote at Kings Langley School.
