The ‘Back on Track’ curriculum looked closely at the fundamentals within Maths, Reading and Grammar from the previous year that had been potentially missed due to the global pandemic and the changes to schooling from March – July. Using the ‘Back on Track’ curriculum data, class teachers have been able to pinpoint the gaps and focus on precision teaching to fill those gaps.

 

  • Your child has also completed formal assessments in Maths, Reading and Grammar and the scores are shared on your child’s report.
