Science Curriculum Map



Year 8 Summer Term data assessment scores will be used to organise students into the following ability groups from Year 9 in Science: Low Starters (LS), Middle Starters (MS) and High Starters (HS). This grouping information will be generated for science teachers and it is never shared with students. This information will identify a pupil’s starting point towards accreditation, but will not anchor them in any one group, or limit the progress they are able to make. It is subject to change depending on how well a pupil progresses through taught units. From these groupings, departments will be able to tailor the curriculum according to the needs of the pupils and work towards the accreditation that best demonstrates their full capability within the subject.
