'A striking conclusion that we have drawn from the findings is that, despite the fact that the curriculum is what is taught, there is little debate or reflection about it. School leaders and inspectors discussed the timetable in each school. The timetable is important. It is, however, not the curriculum. Apart from the timetable, there was an absence of other tangible reference points to get to grips with the complex business of curriculum planning. It was evident from these conversations that took place between inspectors and school leaders that there is a lack of clarity around the language of the curriculum.'

                                                                       - HM Chief Inspector, Amanda Spielman


Sean Harford  : OFSTED National Director of Education  : He said Ofsted would increasingly look for evidence of “strategic decision-making” in a school’s curriculum, something that was likely to form part of a new common inspection framework in September 2019. Leaders would need to “know what their curriculum is and what the intent is” and be able to “articulate that really clearly” to inspectors, including showing how it was having a practical impact in the classroom.


Our new course, ‘Designing and Reviewing Your Curriculum’ will help your school prepare for this new ‘inspection’.  Themes included are :


What is the curriculum quality model ?


What are the proposed revised inspection judgements on curriculum ?


What is a broad and balanced curriculum now ?


What does a good curriculum look like ?


The link between the schools 'ideals' and what happens in the classroom


How has the school balanced high standards with breadth ?


How has the school responded to local issues in it’s curriculum ?


How is progression tracked in ALL subjects ?


Does the curriculum promote social mobility ?


Is SMSC and British Values an integral part of the curriculum

(woven into) rather than simply ‘ an add on’ ?


How is personal development planned ?


What makes your curriculum stand out ?


How do you teach the full curriculum and not just the assessment criteria ?
