Curriculum

Iqra Academy Curriculum Statement of Intent:

  • Our young people are well-prepared for the next stage of their life as global contributors with clear moral purpose.
  • Through the experience of a broad range of entitlement opportunities for their personal, social, cultural and academic progress they develop a set of skills underpinned by their own authentic values.
  • Individuals possess a strong body of transferable core knowledge which they can articulate effectively, drawing upon a wide vocabulary.

Our Curriculum is evaluated through Intent – Implementation – Impact: 

  • The curriculum is a framework for setting out the aims of a programme of education, including the knowledge and understanding to be gained at each stage (intent). Followed by Rationale, ambition and concepts.
  • For translating that framework over time into a structure and narrative, within an institutional context (implementation).
  • Leadership, knowledge, delivery, progression, breadth and depth, assessment and for evaluating what knowledge and skills pupils have gained against expectations (impact/achievement).  Also measured aginst national tests and assessments.

Our Curriculum includes the following: 

  • A structured assessment schedule with rationale for what is being tested and why the testing is taking place
  • Time built in to allow for relearning. Assessment having impact on learning
  • Assessment of teaching. What worked/didn’t work? What do we need to amend to have a greater impact.
  • Spiral assessment which counters the forgetting curve. Regularly re-visiting previous material
  • Validity – we need to be clear about the inferences being drawn from testing impacted by factors such as domain size, on the day performance, marker reliability.
