With Ofsted’s framework now including reference to a ‘judgement on the quality of education’ including ‘a curriculum that is ambitious’, leaders will want to be able to articulate how their curriculum for mathematics meet the needs of the pupils within their setting.
During the day, leaders will have the chance to consider whether their current curriculum is ‘coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills…’ (Ofsted SIU, January 2019). Ideal for subject and senior leaders to attend together, this one day course will set the ball rolling on some deep thinking about curriculum design and implementation. For most, this will include considering: - is the maths curriculum meeting the needs of learners in school? - how can you take the curriculum you have and adapt it for learners’ needs? - how can you support teachers to enact the curriculum with deep understanding of its impact on learners?
This course is the first in a series of one-day courses. School may choose to attend one, two or all three, as part of their mathematics curriculum development work. Each course is bookable separately. Attending all three will give leaders a chance to deeply consider their mathematics curriculum. The other two courses are: Assessing pupil outcomes in the curriculum (Wednesday 29th January 2020) Monitoring the impact of the maths curriculum (Tuesday 9th June 2020)
