There has been considerable focus on curriculum since the2019 Ofsted Inspection Framework rightly placed greater importance on pupils accessing a truly broad and balanced curriculum. Coupled with the groundswell of international activity for the Black Lives Matter movement, school leaders need to understand how to best manage the complex challenge of meeting the requirements laid out by Ofsted, while also addressing the moral requirement to provide BAME pupils with the necessary empowerment to communicate from their own frames of reference.
This virtual half-day national conference, offered by Birmingham Education Partnership, will take educators through a process of curriculum design whilst showcasing the work of Harper Bell Seventh-day Adventist Primary School in Birmingham. It will:
- Recount Harper Bell’s development from an Inadequate school on the brink of closure to a setting that has developed an authentic anti-racist, knowledge-rich curriculum.
- Explore the evidence and theory around curriculum development alongside practical advice to audit current practice, plan for change and evaluate impact.
- Deepen participants’ understanding of curriculum design, teacher development and ways to overcome barriers to learning.
- Discuss the importance of making learning stick via a planned, structured and clear implementation strategy: effective retrieval practice; introducing new learning in small steps; designing learning resources to support all students.
OUR FINANCE TEAM WILL EMAIL YOUR SCHOOL AN INVOICE. PLEASE IGNORE THE WEBSITE GENERATED VERSION.
