Much of the curriculum taught at The Gillford Centre is dictated by the National Curriculum, however it is up to us as an individual school to decide how to deliver our curriculum.


The Curriculum Committee needs to ensure that the school curriculum is broad and balanced, and relevant to the needs of our children. 


They must also ensure that the National Curriculum is delivered in accordance with the legal framework.


As well as supporting the school in its implementation of the curriculum, pupil progress and results are analysed to help identify focus areas. 


The Curriculum committee review the data provided and help to identify, monitor, and review improvement and development targets. 


The committee also liaise with the SENCO to make sure special arrangements are in place for pupils with additional needs - whether be that a little extra help if they are struggling or opportunities to challenge the high flyers.


The Curriculum Committee must also make certain parents are kept informed about key developments relating to the curriculum and provided with the necessary information on their children’s progress in line with legal requirements.
