Publisher's Synopsis

Our role as educators is to develop a curriculum which facilitates outstanding learning and which builds social, cultural and educational capital. The curriculum is much more than a content driven document, it is the vehicle for educational change. This book compliments the Make it Outstanding Series and is central to subject development. It has a strong focus on combining curriculum theory and translating this to a practical approach schools can adapt and implement with ease.

Packed full of practical strategies and examples to facilitate curriculum conversations within subject and senior leadership teams the chapters provide a considered balance between theory and application. Supporting teachers, curriculum leaders, senior leaders and headteachers in leading and implementing the curriculum within their schools, the book covers:

  • An overview of different curriculum models
  • How to develop the curriculum intent from the whole school vision
  • Developing the composite and component structure
  • How we implement the curriculum with a focus on learning episodes
  • How we assess the curriculum
  • Social, cultural and educational capital
  • How we quality assure the curriculum

Developing an Outstanding Curriculum is an essential read for all teachers, curriculum leaders, senior leaders, and headteachers who want to ensure that they drive the development of an outstanding curriculum.
