Curriculum implementation: In the classroom and across the school

In January, Matt Bromley gave us the low-down on curriculum intent. Now, in part one of a two-part article, he turns his attention to the second ‘I’ of the new Ofsted Education Inspection Framework – curriculum implementation

The purpose of Ofsted’s Education Inspection Framework (EIF), which came into effect in September 2019, is we are told to discourage schools from narrowing their curriculum offer and to end practices such as teaching to the test at the expense of a more rounded education that better prepares pupils for the next stages of their education, employment and lives.

The EIF also aims to tackle social justice issues, ending educational disadvantage and affording every child, no matter their starting point and background, an equal opportunity to access an ambitious curriculum and to succeed in school as in life.
