With an ever-greater focus on English and Maths in school assessments and, indeed, the media, it’s easy to feel that the wider curriculum is under-appreciated and falling by the wayside. If you feel that your wider curriculum planning, teaching and learning could benefit from some input, why not invite our expert consultants to support you, your colleagues, your pupils and your wider school community in increasing engagement with and creativity in the wider curriculum? With a mix of training, consultancy, model demonstration lessons and more, you can feel confident that you are giving your children the very best provision.
What we do: We will visit your school to meet with your leadership team and/or English Co-ordinator, in order to conduct an audit of your curriculum, including: paired learning walks; book scrutinies; a pupil perception survey; and an analysis of your whole-school planning.
What you do: This is your opportunity to air any concerns or issues you have with your Foundation Subjects or any other aspect of the wider curriculum and really paint a picture of what you would like support with and what your vision for the curriculum in your school looks like. You can feel comfortable discussing your situation with our friendly, professional, capable consultants in complete confidence, safe in the knowledge that we can help you to improve it.
Outcome: You will receive a detailed report into your school’s current provision, with ideas for simple and effective next steps for immediate improvement.
What we do: Over the course of the next year, we will make regular visits to your school. Each visit will have a clear focus – either training for whole staff; consultancy for your Foundation Subjects co-ordinator or team; model demonstration lessons; planning sessions; joint lesson observations; parental engagement sessions; or any other appropriate focus. These will be decided based on our initial visit, planned by us and agreed by you prior to the start of any support. You will have a team of named consultants, so you always know who is coming and they will become a trusted and integral part of your school community.
What you do: Collaborate with our consultant team to ensure that the training we provide is meeting your needs in the most efficient way possible.
Outcome: Your staff (and wider school community, as appropriate) will be upskilled on the latest theory, practice and Ofsted/government guidance. You will receive a termly report into your school’s progress.
What we do: At the end of the year’s programme, we will conduct a full, comprehensive review of your provision.
What you do: Meet with our consultant team to give and receive feedback on the programme and ensure that you have a clear sense of your next steps.
Outcome: You will receive a final report, outlining the progress your school has made towards your vision and an Ofsted-compliant action plan for the future.
