Principles of Pedagogy

Our innovative curricula are designed by expert teachers, using insights from cognitive science and mastery principles to boost confidence and close gaps in knowledge. There are eight strategies that underpin our curricula:


 
 
 
 
 
 

Effective Sequencing 

 
 
 
 
 

Informed by the principles of cognitive load theory and retrieval practice, topics are sequenced and interleaved at specific intervals to secure fundamental understanding before increasing complexity and challenge over time. 

 
 
 
 
 

Well-Modelled Examples 

 
 
 
 

Our tutors are trained to use built-in models from our resources to share the cognitive load with learners by demonstrating best practice and breaking processes into simpler steps, fully preparing learners to practise independently. 

 
 
 
 
 

Atomisation 

 
 
 
 

Each lesson breaks topics down topics into their sub-components, helping students to identify underlying skills and support understanding. 

 
 
 
 
 

Carefully Chosen Examples 

 
 
 
 

We focus learners’ attention on mathmatical relationships through the careful selection and sequencing of minially-different problems. 

 
 
 
 
 

Purposeful Practice 

 
 
 
 

Activities are designed to build mathematical fluency and support students to gain confidence in skills that enable them to attend to more complex problems. 

 
 
 
 
 

Embedding Core Knowledge 

 
 
 
 

Lessons are led by a focus on technical accuracy, spelling and grammar through short, specific recap tasks which embed students’ foundational reading and writing knowledge. 

 
 
 
 
 

Reading Strategies 

 
 
 
 

Using approaches to independent reading, group reading and teacher read-aloud, tutors keep students engaged and motivated when encountering new texts by modelling reading, asking questions and giving corrective feedback. 

 
 
 
 
 

Vocabulary Instruction 

 
 
 
 

Explicit instruction of high-leverage tier 2 vocabulary alongside powerful study of word roots, prefixes and suffixes unlocks meaning for students when reading, and aids their clarity of expression when writing.
