Curriculum Intent

At Co-op Academy Medlock, we have the ambition for all our pupils to achieve the highest standard.

Our curriculum has been designed to ensure this vision becomes a reality by inspiring all our pupils to become confident, independent and responsible lifelong learners.

To do this, we have ensured that the backgrounds of our community (which have roots across the globe) are reflected in the curriculum content. The explicit sequencing and teaching of vocabulary and subject-specific language is used to provide our children with the highest quality language for learning. Opportunities for reading widely and deeply are central to this, as is the development of children’s ‘voice’ (both verbal and written), to enable them to communicate and question confidently and effectively.‚Äč

Each subject in our curriculum has been designed to always build and link to prior learning and make connections beyond the individual subjects to maximise its impact and ensure the children learn more and remember more.
