Is any one in a secondary school running a middle school type curriculum for Y7

Discussion in 'Secondary' started by thothmat, Mar 17, 2008.

  1. We are thinking of running this type of timetable for y7. giving them more time with a single teacher and moving into specialist areas for science,technology,art etc..
    Does anyone have experience of this for whole year group or small groups?


  2. There are several schools out there. One of them is in Marlborough, for example. :)
    Have you had a look at the RSA curriculum website? You might get the names of a few more schools from them.

    You want to look at middle deemed primary curriculums, not middle deemed secondary, we in middle deemed secondary operate a proper secondary timetable, it's the pupils in KS2 who have it different, i.e. go to specialists for specialist subjects, but have English and humantities with their tutor.

    I do it for a group of weak Y7 students. I teach them English, Maths, History, Geography, RE and PSCHE. I will be moving into Y8 with them too.
  6. I'm doing it with SEN and low ability students in Y9 (first year of upper school in Suffolk) and some of them will be staying in Y10 to form what will become a mixed age "Access Group" in September. I teach them for 17 sessions out of 30 this year (all Humanities, Literacy, Maths etc) and this is going up to 21 sessions in September.
  7. We have 'homebase' for Year 7 - they are with their form tutor for English, History, Geography, R.E. and ICT then go to specialists for other subjects. What would you like to know?
