39 Week Plans

At Maltby Academy all departments plan the learning over a 39 week academic year. A 39 week plan highlights the break down of the topics being taught in that subject over the course of the academic year. Furthermore, a 39 week plan highlights where assessment of learning is taking place, these are highlighted as SPA (strength, problem, action) assessments. Finally, the 39 week plans highlight sections of the academic year that are dedicated to CTG (Closing The Gap) activities. These are frequently conducted near SPA assessments so that students are able to refine and develop their gaps in skills, knowledge and/or understanding.
