The Platform Pups curriculum
The English curriculum includes basic language and grammar skills, comprehension tasks and a structured reading scheme. We expect pupils to further develop their composition skills both in speech and in writing. The mathematics curriculum allows pupils to explore in further detail number, measurement, geometry and statistics. There is an emphasis on consolidating their fundamental mathematical skills to help prepare pupils for their Key Stage 2 study.
The resources we provide
We give all Platform Pups a Platform T-shirt and stationery set when they join the programme. We also give them a Maths workbook and a handful of books, which are returned at the end of the course. All Platform pupils have access to the full online Atom Learning package, at no cost to the pupil or family.
After Platform Pups
In addition to providing a space in which pupils can further develop their learning, we also want to present opportunities to think about the variety of educational choices available to them in the future. Should parents of Platform Pups require any advice or resources to help them make a decision about the next step in their child’s education, they can contact the Director of Platform at Westminster Under School; for contact details, please see below.
