Programme aim: To support teachers and school leaders to use the best available evidence to ensure a high-quality curriculum.
Who is this for: Primary and secondary teachers who have a role in developing curriculum for the phase and/or subject area
This series of four twilights has been designed for the Teaching School Hub by Huntington Research School to support schools to plan a high-quality curriculum. Delivered by primary and secondary specialists, it will explore the sequencing and development of knowledge, a range of cognitive and metacognitive strategies to support learning and the effective use of assessment. Participants will be supported to confidently develop and implement their subject curriculum using evidence summaries from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and other reliable sources of evidence. There will be opportunities to work in primary and secondary specific groups, with optional follow-on subject specific networks.
