Focus Education - Ensuring the Learning Challenge Curriculum is knowledge rich & assessed appropriately - Salford

Date
04/07/2019 09:00 - 15:00
Description

In her latest speech Amanda Spielman talks about a knowledge-rich curriculum that helps to provide greater breadth and balance across the Primary curriculum. According to Ms Spielman, there is a reduced understanding of the curriculum in the current workforce and it is unlikely that many current training programmes will plug the gap.

Focus has adapted its Learning Challenge curriculum so that it meets the criteria of the ‘golden three’: knowledge-rich; teacher led and whole class teaching.

This training is about how using the learning challenge curriculum, incorporating its modifications, ensures curriculum cohesion. The training  provides ‘down-to-earth’ practical suggestions that helps to reduce teacher workload.
