Chris Quigley Essentials

At Knutton, St. Mary’s we have adopted The Chis Quigley Essentials Curriculum to support our delivery of the National Curriculum, and help to embed concepts and key learning in our childrens’ long term memories.

The Chris Quigley website explains that:

‘Essentials is a simple to use Primary Curriculum that helps you to:

  • Plan for Breadth
  • Plan for Progress
  • Assess and record progress.

It includes all National Curriculum subjects and exceeds the requirements of the National Curriculum.

Its clear, simple layout splits each subject into four sections:

  • Essential Characteristics
  • Breadth of Study
  • Threshold Concepts
  • Progress Milestones’
