This course explores the key principles of innovative curriculum design and provides delegates with the tools to develop a rich, broad and balanced curriculum in their own setting. The session is suitable for all primary practitioners from NQTs to school leaders and includes all matters relating to the curriculum from the myths of Ofsted’s Quality of Education judgement to subject leader accountability, supporting pupils’ well-being and their preparation for life as global citizens in the 21st Century. The course is facilitated by John Wayland.
