“The main purpose of curriculum is to build up the content of long-term memory so that when students are asked to think, they are able to think in more powerful ways because what is in their long-term memories makes their short-term memories more powerful.” (Wiliam, 2018)

As a Kite Academy school, we have identified eight disciplinary concepts that underpin our curriculum.  By identifying a main concept  (or concepts)  for each subject in a unit of learning, we are able to develop this curriculum coherence ​or ‘stickability’ of knowledge,  enabling it to be committed to longer term memory.   We use these concepts to shape the key knowledge in a subject, linking across subjects too (‘interdisciplinary’). This process can be summarised in the following diagram. Throughout our planning, the disciplinary concepts are colour coded for quick reference.
