CPD that delivers whole school or college improvement

Preparing for the Primary Curriculum 2014

The Primary Curriculum is changing from September 2014.  The time is short to ensure that all those working with learning in the primary setting understand the implications of the changes and how to plan for delivery that will lead to a consistent approach across all teaching in each year group, across the key stages and within specific subject teaching.  The embedding of literacy and numeracy within each lesson is also critical and there are some significant changes to expectations of what pupils should achieve at the end of each year as they progress through primary school. 

This event is designed to ensure that managers and teachers are as up to date as possible with the planned curriculum changes. However, it also and more importantly designed to ensure that those attending can take away ideas and resource recommendations that will help with planning, save time and create the right environment with which to manage the changes well.

The event will focus on:-

  • A clear and concise overview of the current information available about the changes taking place and why they have been included in the context of the consultation and research findings
  • An opportunity to focus on implementation, planning and how to ensure whole school cohesion in how best to embed the significant changes
  • A specific look at the embedding of Maths and English/literacy and numeracy across all teaching so that learners are competent and able to make connections in every aspect of their learning
  • Considering the phrase 'secondary ready' and the implications of this to future planning of the Key Stage 2 overarching curriculum
  • The chance to look at the process of reflection and professional dialogue through coaching that will foster the sharing of good practice and resources that will support learning and progression in an individual school or across a federation or partnership
  • A review of how to deliver a whole school sustainable programme in-house that will ensure readiness to deliver by September 2014 using coaching as the basis for cascading good practice, innovation and pedagogy

The Learning Cultures team are looking closely at the current consultation exercise that is considering new assessment and accountability measures for primary education and the new curriculum.  Schools will have more freedom to determine their own measures but will have to ensure that 85% of pupils are 'secondary ready' by the end of year 6.  This event will give those who attend an opportunity to review how they can build on what they do well now and develop robust strategies to support the management of change.

Who is it for?

Head teachers, Deputy Heads and Assistant Heads who are responsible for curriculum or for the Continuing Professional Development of staff. Subject leaders and those with responsibility for embedding the literacy and numeracy strand across the curriculum. Teachers across all years and key stages who need to have a good understanding of how to shape their schemes of work and plan learning opportunities. This event will also be very useful to those involved in the transition process from Key Stage to Key Stage especially from 2 to 3 as the degree of partnership is becoming ever more crucial to ensuring all learners can progress and achieve their full potential.
