Curriculum Plans

At Chessington School, we follow the national curriculum. The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.

In order to help students and parents to understand their learning journey, we have a road map for each subject that they study to show how students progress their knowledge and skills. The road map or tier 1, shows all of the topics that students will study in that subject from years 7-11.

You may also wish to look at the tier 2 half term by half term curriculum plan for each subject. This tells you what students are studying in each topic and what they will be assessed in. It may also include links to what level of knowledge/ what key stage they are working on.

Both of these documents are helpful for parents and guardians as they allow you to know what our students are being taught and when they are being taught each topic. This allows you to have conversations with your children at home to discuss some of their learning. One of the best ways to help students learn is to ask them to explain to show they have understood. Please use these documents to ask them lots of questions about their learning journey!

If you have any questions, then please speak to your child's subject teacher in the first instance.
