Duke of Kent School
In recent years curriculum planning and design has moved centre stage. This is being driven by the need to ensure that we are preparing young people for a personal, social and economic world that is rapidly evolving, as well as a change of focus from the DfE and Ofsted. Independent schools have the potential to create a unique and distinctive curriculum – but do we have the confidence and boldness to grasp that opportunity?
Curriculum planning and design demands the attention of both senior and middle leadership. This course will engage delegates in a discussion on how we ensure that our curriculum best prepares children and young people for their future as well as reflecting our school’s aims. It will consider how to review your school’s or department’s curriculum offer, how to select, structure and sequence content and to ensure that assessment strategies support curriculum intent rather than inhibit.
The curriculum reflects a school’s purpose. Getting it right is essential for the progress of those we educate, and for the future of our schools.
