SEND – School Improvement and the Curriculum

Online / Wednesday 22 June 2022

Decisions made by subject leaders are crucial to ensuring that the curriculum is cohesive and matches the needs of all your students.

The current Ofsted framework focuses heavily on the curriculum design and crucially the Quality of Education. Leaders at all levels need to be confident in articulating the rationale behind the choices that have been made and their judgements about the quality of provision.

The event will cover the following areas:

  • Intent – balancing whole school consistency with specific needs of students
  • Content – exploring decisions about content and specifications
  • Pedagogy – considering curriculum delivery and retention
  • Impact – evidencing those ambitions are being realised
  • Being ready, not preparing for, an Ofsted inspection and school improvement reviews
  • Sign posting to recent research

By participating in this event, you will have a clear understanding of any steps that you might want to take to ensure that:

  • Your curriculum offer is clear, ambitious and meets the needs of all learners
  • Your use of teaching and learning assessment guides
  • All staff understand and are able to articulate their contribution towards the school’s vision and the quality of education

This event will be delivered by Gary Nixon FRSA C. Psychologist
