NEW! Curriculum design masterclasses 

We are now offering a series of bespoke twilight INSET events – run remotely or face-to-face – for your senior and/or middle leadership teams that will walk them through the curriculum design process, step by step and over time, combining ‘delivery’ and ‘coaching’, thus enabling senior leaders and subject leaders to evaluate their current provision and enact sustainable improvements to the curriculum.

These twilight events run in two cycles across an academic year:

1: Intent

This cycle is a series of 3 one-hour twilight events which cover the following:

1 Agree the vision and set the destination

2 Assess the starting points and identify the waypoints

3 Define excellence and diminish disadvantage

 

 

2: Implementation 

This cycle, which follows on from cycle 1, is also a series of 3 one-hour twilight events which cover the following:

1 Create the learning environment and gain the attention of pupils’ working memories

2 Encode information into, and subsequently retrieve it from, long-term memory

3 Ensure equal access to quality first teaching and develop the culture and systems

All participants will receive a copy of Matt’s books, School and College Curriculum Design 1: Intent and School and College Curriculum Design 2: Implementation.

To discuss running these masterclasses in your school or college, please contact us.

More useful advice from the Bromley Education archive:

  • If you’re teaching via webinar or uploading online videos, think about the structure of your ‘lecture’. Here, I advocate a 4-part teaching sequence that may be helpful. Start with a clear teacher explanation, then model the task whilst thinking aloud, then explain how pupils should practice the task.
  • When setting work for pupils to complete at home, whether via learning packs or an online platform, reflect on what we know about effective homework – try to focus on retrieval practice activities and make sure any new information is presented by you not left to pupils to ‘discover’ unless you can be sure they’ll do it well.
  • One of the most impactful tasks in which pupils can engage at home – and an easy one to manage – is reading books… lots of books. Here I talk about passing on the power of reading
  • Linked to the above, we might use this period of home schooling to focus on developing pupils’ literacy abilities. Here – Literacy empowers – I share advice on teaching oracy, reading and writing… some of the advice can be translated to remote learning.
  • Here are some free posters outlining the characteristics of good readers
  • Here is some advice on effective revision which may help older pupils with their independent study at home (here’s another article on revision which I wrote with post-16 students in mind)
  • Here’s an article I wrote on lecture style learning which may help when delivering webinars
  • Here’s some advice for parents on reading bedtime stories to younger children
  • Here’s some advice for pupils on study skills – the conspiracy of success

Matt interviews David Birch about ASCL’s Forgotten Third project

Matt interviews former headteacher David Birch about his work on the Forgotten Third project which was an independent Commission of Inquiry set up in October 2018 to look into how to improve the prospects of those students who do not achieve at least a grade 4 standard pass in GCSE English and maths at the end of 12 years of schooling. Young people who fall below this bar pay a high price in terms of reduced prospects in progression to further and higher education and to careers. The Commission focused specifically on how we can do better for these young people in respect of English, though many of its observations could also be applied to maths.

Matt interviews assistant headteacher Zoe Evans about skills development 

Matt is in the interviewer’s chair to ask assistant headteacher Zoe Evans about her work on developing literacy, numeracy and digital competency skills for pupils at a school in North Wales.
