NCP 20-17: Year 5-8 Continuity

Work Groups in this project aim to strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school by focusing on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8.

Participants should be teachers of Years 5-8 in primary, secondary, middle school and all-through schools who have some responsibility for curriculum development, e.g. primary school maths leads/secondary heads of department.

  • deepen knowledge and understanding of the curriculum across KS2 and KS3 and the expectations of pupils at the end of each KS
  • understand the approaches which will support pupils as they move from KS2 to KS3, including the importance of consistency of language and representations
  • make use of common approaches, representations and language across phases
  • develop collaboration between primary and secondary colleagues on issues of curriculum and pedagogy, making them part of the school’s transition practice (and policy).

There will be 5 sessions.
