In this seven-part series for SecEd, Matt Bromley looks at designing and delivering and broad, balanced and effective curriculum for your school.

The series – published in September and October 2018 – includes seven articles:

  • A general discussion about what a good curriculum should look like.
  • Key questions to ask when creating your curriculum vision and Ofsted’s view of what makes an effective school curriculum (and some common weaknesses).
  • The role that knowledge and building cultural capital through vocabulary must play as part of a broad and balanced curriculum offer.
  • What we can learn from the curriculum to which Shakespeare was exposed while at school in Stratford.
  • A model of how we can work backwards from the intended outcomes in order to create a purposeful curriculum.
  • How we can ensure our curriculum builds on what pupils have learnt in primary, and how we should approach key stage 3.
  • The importance of the language of learning used by teachers, and a look at Ofsted’s latest comments ahead of its new inspection framework in 2019.
