Continuous student development is at the heart of all planning. The Primary Planning Tool facilitates the effortless creation of a Whole-School Plan to aid in this development. This feature provides teachers with the foundation to create detailed and actionable Long-term Plans, Short-term Plans and Cuntais Míosúla.
The Whole-school plan sets out your school’s approach to the teaching and learning of a particular subject. Most importantly this helps to ensure the smooth progression of students throughout the primary cycle.
The Primary Planning Tool promotes holistic planning by providing you with a school-wide planning feature which you and your colleagues can continually reference when creating your Long-term Plans. The feature also functions in such a way as to ensure that there is no duplication of curriculum objectives across different class levels.
Creating your Whole-school Plan
Creating your Whole-school Plan couldn’t be easier. The subject specific planner allows you to assign individual strand units and content objectives to specific classes. Learning outcomes are directly taken from the pre-populated NCCA curriculum which ensures that plans are curriculum aligned school wide.
In the curriculum planning window, principles can quickly add or remove stand units and content objectives by clicking on the star. Content objectives added to the Whole-school Plan are then highlighted with a star when you are creating your Long-term Plans and Short-term Plans.
In the corresponding “Reports” page principals can view the NCAA curriculum for each subject. This will provide you with an overview of the planned content objectives included in each your colleague’s plans. This will, therefore, give each principal a better insight into the level of integration and alignment with the Whole-School Plan.
You can also choose to filter the NCCA curriculum content objectives based on whether you have included them in the overall school plan or not.
