Psychology A level Curriculum Map
Intent: Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and how it dictates and influences our behaviour, from communication and memory to thought and
emotion. It's about understanding what makes people tick and how this understanding can help us address many of the problems and issues in society
today. People seek the help and support of psychologists for all sorts of problems, and psychologists employ their knowledge and expertise to help in many
areas of society. The A level Psychology curriculum will give students a strong foundation to pursue a career in the field. By the end of the course students
will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of psychological concepts, theories, research studies, research methods and ethical issues within
Psychology. They will be able apply psychological knowledge and understanding in a range of contexts and be able to analyse, interpret and evaluate
psychological concepts, theories, research studies and research methods. Knowledge and understanding of research methods, practical research skills and
mathematical skills is a vital part of the Psychology curriculum and students will be given opportunity to design and carry out their own research as well as
practice analysis and interpreting data.

Impact:
• To ensure students achieve they fullest potential in Psychology, students will be formatively assessed once a fortnight through written assessment that
includes short questions, extended essays and research methods questions that will embed key elements of the mark schemes.
• Data from assessments will then be used to target students and aim to enhance their development areas though re‐teaching lessons and intervention.
• Students data from assessments and PPE exams will be analysed to highlight any areas for development e.g. short mark questions, extended writing or
research methods/maths.
• Students will be set homework regularly which requires them to revisit content from the lessons and practise assessment style questions. This ensures
learning is extended further. All homework will be recorded on Show My Homework.
• Students will be directed to do further reading around the subject by making use of online resources and the school library. Extracurricular trips will also
be organised to Psychological institutions as appropriate.

It's about understanding what makes people tick and how this understanding can help us address many of the problems and issues in society today. People seek the help and support of psychologists for all sorts of problems, and psychologists employ their knowledge and expertise to help in many areas of society. The A level Psychology curriculum will give students a strong foundation to pursue a career in the field. By the end of the course students will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of psychological concepts, theories, research studies, research methods and ethical issues within Psychology. They will be able apply psychological knowledge and understanding in a range of contexts and be able to analyse, interpret and evaluate psychological concepts, theories, research studies and research methods. Knowledge and understanding of research methods, practical research skills and mathematical skills is a vital part of the Psychology curriculum and students will be given opportunity to design and carry out their own research as well as practice analysis and interpreting data. Implementation: Term Autumn 1 & 2 Spring 3 Spring 4 Summer 5 & 6 Year 12 We use the first two half terms to introduce students to research methods and the approaches in psychology. These are taught first to allow students to learn the skills they will need to answer exam questions. This ensures that when we move onto topics, each area is complimented by the relevant methodological understanding of how that research was conducted and how it Xmas Holiday The next half term continues developing the foundations of psychology by applying previous learning to the topics of social influence and memory. Students look closely at theories and research studies in social psychology that explain the processes of conformity and obedience on an individual and societal level. Students also investigate In the fourth term, students continue studying Y12 topics by looking at attachment and the psychopathology. Students study developmental psychological research investigating the processes involved in the formation of attachment and the possible consequences of its abnormal development. They also study psychopathology, examining the definitions of abnormality and then investigating Easter holiday The next two half terms involve finishing off any Y12 topics not completed, and preparing students for their end of year exams, before moving on to Y13 work. We revisit more advanced year 2 content in research methods and approaches. Students investigate further methods of conducting research in Psychology are explored including case studies and new methods of analysis data such as content Summer holiday

Students examine the key components of the experimental method, issues of ethics and validity in research, correlational design and meta‐analysis. Students also study non – experimental methods of research and methods of sampling and data analysis including through practical lessons. Students will be assessed regularly with application of their learning to exam questions both formally, within lessons and informally, through homework. Feedback will be provided, and students will have opportunity to psychological research into Memory.

Validity and reliability are revisited and covered in greater detail and opportunities are provided to relate this to a variety of research scenarios. We then look at the ‘how to plan a study’ exam questions. Students are also provided with an opportunity to continue developing the foundations of Psychology through the critical teaching of the final two (the psychodynamic approach and the humanistic approach) of the six main approaches in Psychology and their comparisons.

During year 13, students have an extra 60 mins a week of lessons. This term we will provide students with after school revision sessions which will focus on revision of paper 1 and 2 material to make sure they are confident on these topics before their first set of PPE’s in November. Students will complete end of topic assessments, for which they will receive teacher feedback, to prepare them for future exams. They then sit the first lot of PPE’s and full feedback will be provided. topic draws upon prior knowledge in approaches and so memory platforms will be used to revisit these concepts. This term we will continue to provide students with after school revision sessions which will focus on revision of paper 2 material to make sure they are confident on these topics before their second set of PPE’s in March. Students will complete end of topic assessments, for which they will receive teacher feedback, to prepare them for future exams.

Impact: • To ensure students achieve they fullest potential in Psychology, students will be formatively assessed once a fortnight through written assessment that includes short questions, extended essays and research methods questions that will embed key elements of the mark schemes. • Data from assessments will then be used to target students and aim to enhance their development areas though re‐teaching lessons and intervention. • Students data from assessments and PPE exams will be analysed to highlight any areas for development e.g. short mark questions, extended writing or research methods/maths. • Students will be set homework regularly which requires them to revisit content from the lessons and practise assessment style questions. This ensures learning is extended further. All homework will be recorded on Show My Homework. • Students will be directed to do further reading around the subject by making use of online resources and the school library. Extracurricular trips will also be organised to Psychological institutions as appropriate.
