Using the national curriculum and our school vision and values, subject leaders have developed the ‘Howard Knowledge Essentials,’ criteria which we aspire for all our children to achieve during their time at Ackworth Howard. We strive for all children to leave our school equipped with the essential knowledge they need to succeed at secondary school and in future life. For each subject and year group a set of non-negotiables have been established to enable learners to sustain strong progress as they move through our school.

These knowledge essentials influence planning by the teachers and ensure that our children ‘Know more, remember more and can do more.’
