We all welcome the shift in the Ofsted emphasis towards a bolder curriculum but …
What steps can we take to design a ‘bold and ambitious curriculum’ that gives every child ‘a full, deep, rich education’ called for by the Head of Ofsted?
How do we evaluate, revitalise and innovate our curriculum?
How can we ensure that every child flourishes whilst achieving high standards?
What does a creative, connected memorable curriculum look like?
How can we halt the ‘pixlification’ of education lamented by Amanda Spielman and join up teaching and learning in a meaningful way?
How can we lead curriculum transformation in our school with the team that we have?
The Ofsted framework is changing for 2019. Schools will be inspected for the quality of their education, the ‘distinctiveness’ of their curriculum and whether they are properly preparing young people to succeed in modern Britain.
There will be a ‘greater interest in why and what schools are teaching, along with outcomes.’
This course will equip Heads and SLT to evaluate their current curriculum and see fresh approaches to school improvement centred on an inspiring, broad and first- class curriculum.
The Ofsted research behind the framework 2019 highlights the positive impact of external providers in curriculum development ‘External providers can
- introduce participants to new knowledge and skills
- help teachers believe they can make a difference to pupil outcomes act as monitors and facilitators.’
