Planning for History, Geography, Art and DT is taught through our ‘Connected Curriculum’ where learning sequences are closely linked. Other subjects, including Science, Computing, RE, Music, French (Modern Foreign Languages) and PE are taught discretely, although links are made to the Connected Curriculum when directly relevant.
The key drivers of this approach are that our curriculum: Aims high, ensures children are ready and able, encouraged to think critically and explore creativity as well as invest in themselves. In order to secure a high quality curriculum we ensure specialist teachers are deployed alongside our teachers in MfL and PE to ensure access, depth and progression is secured in alignment with our curriculum statement.

Subject rationales outline how each area of the curriculum has been thoughtfully deigned to create a learning journey for each pupil over their seven years at Talbot. As such, rationales can be thought of as our intent for each subject.
