How was the 5-year plan developed? The 5-year plan grew out of the KS3 Science Syllabus that Mastery Science developed with AQA. The 5-year plan is more ambitious and provides a framework that will completely prepare students for the greater demands of new GCSE. 

How do you put the 5-year plan into practice? The 5-year plan is not just an alternate set of learning objectives. It embeds a lot of curriculum research and requires shifts in mindset and classroom practice. Mastery Science is supporting these with CPD, books and the Complete Mastery materials.

We used these to help us on our recent Deep Dive review and they helped a lot. One thing that has come back is knowing what they need to know for each concept. We used your Mastery planners but they said that wasn’t detailed enough, I think they were asking for a list like a specification (or even more detailed than that). I wasn’t in the meeting (as I was on a course) so I couldn’t point out the key facts on the planners, nor our list of ‘can do’ statements that I have prepared, but I though you might want to consider this feedback. To be honest, I suspect that I could have argued it and they’d have been satisfied. Other than that one small point, the feedback for the Mastery Curriculum was VERY positive. I’ve included a snip from the document, some points aren’t relevant to your work, but many are:
