SecEd's January 2020 Best Practice Focus eight-page pull out section offers four steps to help schools design an effective, broad and balanced curriculum.

The new Ofsted Education Inspection Framework has thrust the curriculum into the spotlight.

The intent, implementation and impact of what we teach are under scrutiny as inspectors look for a broad and balanced curriculum.

In this free download, Matt Bromley offers us a four-step plan for curriculum design and asks some key questions about what we teach – the intent aspect of Ofsted's three "I"s.

Topics under discussion include Ofsted's new vocabulary for curriculum inspection, your school's curriculum vision, the role of senior leaders in curriculum design, teacher workload and skills, the start and end points of your curriculum, and more.

A free eight-page pdf of this Best Practice Focus is available to download by clicking the button above.

Matt has also written subsequently focusing on Ofsted's "implementaiton" and "impact". You can read these articles via the following links:
