How 'Designed' is your Curriculum

Why is this course relevant and important?

From September Ofsted will be asking schools to provide a detailed explanation of how their curriculum is designed and why it is designed as it is. This is in response to the narrowing in some schools of the curriculum over recent years due to the pressure to raise standards in core subjects. They are now interested in all aspects of the curriculum. It is important that schools have a clear understanding of curriculum design that goes beyond a generic description such as ‘creative’ or ‘skills based’.


Essential Questions:

• How does your curriculum reflect the culture, climate and values of your school?

• How have you decided on the breadth of experiences you provide?

• Is the breadth of experiences suitable enough to promote social mobility?

• Does the breadth interweave coherently SMSC, including British values with academic studies rather than tagging them on?

• How is personal development defined and planned?

• How do you balance the drive for high standards with a full spectrum curriculum that emphasises high standards in both core and foundation subjects?

• How does the curriculum provide for physical and mental wellbeing?

• How do you manage to teach a full curriculum rather than focusing on national assessment criteria alone?

• Which innovations have you pioneered in designing your curriculum?

• How do you track pupils’ achievements in all subjects?

• What is the role of subject or other leaders in ensuring curriculum coverage, progression and improvements?

This course will advance your understanding of:

• How to articulate the design of your curriculum.

• How to evaluate the effectiveness of your curriculum in terms of both academic and personal development outcomes for pupils.

• How to ensure your curriculum is bespoke to your school.
