About the Webinar

On the 2nd July, the DfE released their ‘guidance for full opening – schools’. It provides all schools with a detailed plan of what key measures should be implemented to help ensure children are able to return back to school safely and allow for as full a curriculum as possible.

The guidance states the DfE’s expectations and outlines the key principles that underpin their advice on curriculum planning. It sets out specific points of interest from EYFS to key stages 4 and 5, with a focus on delivering prime areas of learning to address gaps in progress and providing extra support to help catch up on content missed whilst continuing to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum.

The guidance also references the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) report ‘COVID-19 Support Guide for Schools’, which stresses the importance of professional development in order to support curriculum planning or effective use of technology.

In this webinar, The National College will provide senior leaders, headteachers, curriculum and subject leads with practical advice and guidance on how schools can best prepare for a September return and successfully deliver DfE expectations on curriculum.

Learning Outcomes

  • Recognising where additional catch-up support may be required and how to modify the school curriculum to address gaps in knowledge for disadvantaged, SEND and vulnerable pupils.

  • Understanding how specialist schools and other settings can continue to teach an ambitious and broad curriculum in all subjects whilst also progressing pupil development.

  • Planning curriculum development based on individual pupil’s starting points and making effective use of regular formative assessments.

  • Identifying the key areas to prioritise at EYFS and different key stages to ensure continuous progression and essential knowledge and skills are developed.
