The delivery of our curriculum, is underpinned by our intention to develop the confidence, ambition and communication skills of our young people. Our approach to doing this is summarised under each of the Lawnswood Link headings, and can be seen threaded through each of the subject pages.
Effective assessment and high-quality teaching & learning are essential to ensuring that all students can access the curriculum. Please click on this link to our Assessment Handbook to read more about our approach to assessment.
Our approach to assessment and reporting is also captured in this short video presentation:
At Key Stage 3 students study a wide range of subjects for three years, in order to allow them to then make informed choices about which subjects they wish to learn at a greater depth during Key Stage 4. The Year 9 Options book, summarises the range of course on offer at Key Stage 4 >>
At Key Stage 5, we work in partnership with Ralph Thoresby School to ensure that students then have a further range of course to choose from, which are listed in the Key Stage 5 prospectus >>
Rose Spellman in 7C1 has produced some great work in history. She has been investigating & developing source skills to create a summary table in order to analyse how Harold really died at the Battle of Hastings. Pretty gruesome! #HistoryMatters #curiosity https://t.co/eGKyVw6Pyn
