Long Term Plan 

Our long term plan ensures coverage of each subject area across the curriculum and is monitored by each subject leader alongside a range of other monitoring tasks that ensure coverage and progression. Teachers may change the order of some topics where there is justification to do so, but will still ensure coverage of all topics across all subject areas.
