Achieve the Best in school: Broad & Balanced Curriculum - 9 June 2020

We are nearly a year on since 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.

Achieve the Best in school: Broad & Balanced Curriculum

Content

We are nearly a year on since 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 have ensured that they have a broad and balanced curriculum to suit their needs. The course will allow you to:

• Interrogate the definition of the curriculum • Look at your long-term planning to ensure it is effective • Discus opportunities for children to use their English, Maths and Science skills across the whole curriculum • Review how all subjects are actively assessed • Review how your curriculum is audited and monitored to ensure progress

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

Free parking at venue.
