Description

This book offers comprehensive guidance to support those involved in secondary education in developing the curriculum to meet the requirements of the new Ofsted (2019) framework.

It addresses key issues such as the purposes of the curriculum, how to organise the curriculum, and the balance between knowledge and skills. It also goes beyond basic requirements, emphasizing the importance of a creative, pupil-centred and enquiry-based curriculum which is suited to the context of school communities. Responding to the increased emphasis on the quality of pupils’ education, the book supports trainees, teachers and school leaders in developing and implementing an ambitious and diverse curriculum, including working with all stakeholders and offering practical strategies and solutions. It empowers practitioners to reclaim the curriculum by designing one which reflects the values and context of the school.
