At Leigh Academy Blackheath (LAB), we believe that successful curriculum design begins with identifying which knowledge is felt to be of greatest value to students, within each subject, as they progress throughout the education system and into the world of work. 

Said knowledge is then specified in detail and sequenced in the order that maximises retention in students’ long-term memory, so that they may apply this confidently and skilfully in ways recognised as valuable by each subject. 

The implementation of said, powerful knowledge is then evaluated through assessment, informing teacher actions that will improve student outcomes. Click here to find out more about Maths at LAB!
