Statements of Intent

It is imperative that school leaders and teachers have a shared view of the rationale behind their curriculum design; rationale that they can articulate and disseminate easily to all other stakeholders. Curriculum leaders especially need to have a strong grasp of the thinking behind their chosen area and should be able to discuss the ‘intent’ behind it.

The Statements of Intent provide leaders with clarity around each curriculum area and capture the deliberate thinking process behind each. They are divided into three distinct sections: Purpose of Study, Who is The Sonar Historian/Geographer etc, and Sonar Curriculum Rationale.

The Statements of Intent are available for every curriculum area, both core and foundation subjects, and support leadership in the rationale behind effective curriculum design.
