Our experts discuss the difference between a planned lesson and a lesson plan and ask how lesson planning is best undertaken – where do we start and who is responsible for what within each subject?

We ask what should be included in medium and short-term lesson planning? What are the non-negotiables for lesson plans, including key knowledge, skills, and the big questions? Which end-points should we include? What do we want pupils to think about, know and do? What are your success criteria?

How does lesson-planning link to curriculum sequencing? How do we incorporate our school’s learning values? What is the balance between departmental direction vs individual teacher planning and autonomy?
