Realising the Primary Curriculum Vision, Intent and Ambition - Leading a culture that delivers solutions to support the implementation of a clearly defined, deep and rich curriculum for all pupils

Triad of evidence based solutions

Leading a whole school collaborative journey that delivers high quality learning

OFSTED's new handbook is now being used to inspect schools across England. This one-day training course focuses on the strategies that will ensure all staff are working together within phases, across year groups and as part of subject specific learning to deliver a deep and rich curriculum that inspires all pupils to learn and achieve their full potential.

  • Creating a consistent whole school strategy that celebrates what is working well and how new approaches and innovations can enrich the curriculum offer
  • Defining the key factors that will support a collaborative approach to subject specific, skills focused, conceptual and cross-curricular learning
  • Developing an in-house focus on continuing professional development and support using well-researched resources and activities from this training that can be used with teams or as part of whole school INSET so that delegates can share and cascade their learning with others

Inspectors will explore:

  • "how carefully leaders have thought about what end points the curriculum is building towards, what pupils will be able to know and do at those end points, and how they have planned the curriculum accordingly".
  • "how leaders have sequenced the curriculum to enable pupils to build their knowledge and skills towards agreed end points".
  • "how leaders have ensured that the subject curriculum contains content which has been identified as most useful, and ensure that this content is taught in a logical progression, systematically and explicitly enough for all pupils to acquire the intended knowledge and skills".

OFSTED November 2019

This one-day training course will focus on:-

  • A review of the quality framework that has clearly defined strategies for change linked to current research and good practice in curriculum design and delivery
  • A focus on curriculum intent, rationale and ambition and how this is consistently translated into a deep and rich offer by those planning a sequential, knowledge rich and skills focused curriculum
  • Building a consensus on what defines successful pedagogy that will deliver highly interactive and independent learning to ensure pupils learn the curriculum
  • A close look at how senior, middle and subject leaders can assess the successful and consistent implementation of the curriculum through highly effective use of interactive lesson observation, feedback and opportunities for reflection with teachers, support staff and pupils
  • An in-depth look at the need to foster highly interactive professional learning conversations. We look at the how using coaching techniques will ensure the management of change and consistency of purpose is highly visible and effective
  • Defining how to manage an in-house continuing professional development strategy that will support all staff. We provide a wealth of resources to support a sustained CPD plan

All our training is designed so that those who attend can take their learning back to school and share it with others.  We provide all our resources for use on the day and then electronically afterwards so that they can be used for other training or as part of ongoing team building.

Have a look at the list of 'deep dive' questions we have compiled from our research into curriculum planning and implementation. Read Glynis's newspost about 'deep dive' questioning and how to immerse yourself in having answers to them.

Who is it for?

Headteachers, Deputy Headteachers, Assistant Heads and subject leaders who are responsible for curriculum planning and the on-going quality of teaching and learning.  It will also be useful for the person in school who is responsible for continuing professional development (CPD) of all staff.  This event may also be useful for those involved in the transition process from Key Stage to Key Stage where a continuum of learning is essential to ensuring progression and a continuum of learning.

All our events are centrally located. Registration and refreshments are available from 9.30am for a 10.00am start and we finish around 3.30pm to 4.00pm.

We also offer this event as an INSET or for groups of senior leaders to work together to build collaborative approaches to curriculum planning and delivery for the whole school.
