Achieve the Best in school: Broad and Balanced Curriculum

Summary

Last year, Amanda Spielman, HMCI, made clear that schools must focus more on the “real meat” of education - the curriculum. Advocating the benefits of a ‘broad and balanced curriculum’ is nothing new, with successive curriculum reviews and governments extolling its virtues. In fact, the need to provide such an education is enshrined in law, with the Education Act (2002).

Course Content

Last year, Amanda Spielman, HMCI, made clear that schools must focus more on the “real meat” of education - the curriculum. Advocating the benefits of a ‘broad and balanced curriculum’ is nothing new, with successive curriculum reviews and governments extolling its virtues. In fact, the need to provide such an education is enshrined in law, with the Education Act (2002).  Therefore, we must each ask ourselves the question, ‘What are we doing to provide our pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum?’

This course, along with exploring expectations from Ofsted, will look at ways in which schools can ensure they have a broad and balanced curriculum to suit their needs. We will: 

  • Interrogate the definition of the curriculum
  • Look at how to establish effective long-term planning
  • Plan explicit opportunities for children to use their English, Maths and Science skills across the whole curriculum
  • Ensure all subjects are actively assessed
  • Regularly audit and monitor provision for all subjects

Delegates will take away a range of practical ideas and resources to help implement their own Broad and Balanced curriculum.
