  2. Creating a tapestry of knowledge, skills and conceptual understandinga focus on the need to have the evidence that pupils have the skills to access knowledge and the conceptual understanding to make connections in their subject learning and across all learning
  3. Sequencing the curriculumthat builds on prior learning and leads to clearly defined end points so that pupils are deepening their understanding and retaining knowledge in their long-term memories
  4. Assessing the learning – creating the strategies that build a culture where what is being assessed is an intrinsic part of curriculum planning so that subject leaders and teachers know how well pupils are progressing and to what extent they have retained powerful knowledge over time

Who is this course for?

Senior school leaders who have overall responsibility for designing the curriculum and ensuring the curriculum offer leads to positive outcomes for all learners.

Curriculum and Subject leads and Department Heads with the responsibility for translating the curriculum intent into positive curriculum plans for their teams across year groups and key stages.

Subject teachers who are responsible for implementing a seamless and progressive learning experience that builds on prior learning and is planned towards clearly defined end points.

We look in detail at the language of the curriculum in relation to how senior leaders and their subject teams work together to define how to deliver high-quality education outcomes for all learners whatever their starting point. We give delegates resources and materials to support them to ensure that the planned curriculum focuses on standards linked to subject knowledge, subject and cross-curricular concepts and how pupils build on prior learning over time and sequence learning towards clearly defined assessment points.
