Curriculum intent into implementation

My book Primary Curriculum Design and Delivery is now published. It takes a deep dive into the focus on intent into implementation and how to design and deliver a seamless and sequenced primary curriculum. I am currently writing its sister publication about the secondary curriculum which will be published towards the end of the year. My focus for both is to look in detail at the complex issues around curriculum intent into implementation and offer practical solutions to creative and cohesive design and delivery.

Being an integral part of the growth and development of Learning Cultures over 12 years has given me the opportunity to delve deeply into what makes an outstanding curriculum and how through the power of professional conversations all schools can build an innovative and exciting curriculum that leads to the highest quality of education.

There is a vocabulary that all those from senior leaders, middle, curriculum, subject leaders and teachers need to know in the pursuance of excellence in their planning and delivery of a powerful curriculum offer. Design and delivery of the curriculum starts with positive and transformational senior leadership defining the intent, the vision and the ambition, but the distribution of responsibility for its implementation is firmly with subject leaders and experts who can empower and work with their teaching teams to deliver outstanding pedagogy and deep learning.

Meet Glynis and work with her considerable expertise and unique CPD approaches to look in detail at how to build from what currently works well to continuously improve pedagogy and ignite a passion for learning in your school through a deep dive into curriculum challenge and change. Also available as live webinars.

Defining quality through a deep dive into curriculum intent and implementation

Since its inception in 2014 the new curriculum for England has become the fulcrum by which we measure quality in relation to the education we choose to shape for pupils in early years, primary and secondary schools. The most recent OFSTED handbook echoes throughout a desire to build the highest quality of leadership, teaching and learning, behaviour and pastoral care across the sector. What I have tried to do is to look beyond the scope of inspection to the possibilities of developing a highly innovative and sequenced curriculum to ignite a passion for learning for both teachers and pupils that will last a lifetime.

This is the third time we have hosted this event and the praise Glynis has received for
her outstanding materials and creative
approach to building depth, breadth and a profound understanding of how to create a seamless curriculum
from early years to the end of key stage 3.

I continue to be immersed in research into the curriculum and the absolute essential CPD that must be at the heart of building a curriculum offer that delivers the vision and sets the parameters for measuring and assuring the highest quality outcomes. Although this first book is aimed at the primary school leaders, subject and phase leaders and teachers as well as teacher educators it should also be of interest to those involved in the education of those in year 7 and key stage 3. There is an absolute imperative for secondary schools to build on prior learning especially as pupils cross the transition bridge from KS2 to KS3.

This course about transition from primary
to secondary school. It is one of our most popular courses. It is highly praised and provides
a wealth of outstanding resources, materials
and activities for you to ensure all pupils thrive and grow as they move from year 6 to year 7.

Professional conversations about curriculum intent and how it translates into the highest quality implementation in every subject and across year groups, phases and key stages are the key to success. My first book about the primary curriculum and its sister publication do and will include a wealth of guidance and ideas as to how to build a learning culture that puts curriculum at the heart of creating the highest quality education.

Consistency in curriculum design and delivery comes from creating time for senior and subject leaders to work together as well as subject leaders and their teams collaborating to plan what to teach, when to teach and how to teach their subject. Then time should be allocated for all involved to reflect on what works well and how all those involved can continue to grow in their role and build a collaborative process of continuous excellence and improvement.
