What is a differentiated curriculum?

All teachers must ensure that their planning and teaching enables all children to access lessons and make progress. This means that all work within class is pitched at an appropriate level so that all children are able to access according to their specific needs. This may mean that in a lesson there would be three different levels of work set for the class, however on occasions this can be individually differentiated.

The benefit of this type of differentiation is that all children can access a lesson and learn at their level. This approach should also be taken when setting homework. It is important to talk to your school if you are worried that your child is struggling with homework.
