Developing A Curriculum For Long Term Learning

February 13 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm


Developing A Curriculum For Long Term Learning – Clare Sealy and Andrew Percival

In recent years there has been a growing interest in curriculum design with Ofsted acknowledging that there has not always been a sufficient focus on this during inspection. As Amanda Spielman HMCI says in her initial commentary on curriculum –

“A striking conclusion that we have drawn… is that, despite the fact that the curriculum is what is taught, there is little debate or reflection about it.”

In light of current findings from the field of cognitive science, Clare Sealy and Andrew Percival have been working to develop a rich curriculum that promotes long term learning in their respective schools. Join them to find out more about the intent, implementation and impact of such a curriculum.

The day’s training will focus on:

  • Current national perspectives on curriculum
  • An overview of how memory works and how this can influence our thinking about curriculum
  • Developing a curriculum that promotes long term learning through applying research from cognitive science
  • Developing a curriculum that puts rich knowledge and vocabulary at the heart of learning
  • Designing and using Knowledge Organisers to support long term learning

Please note that lunch and refreshments will be provided (please contact mgriffiths@st-matthias.towerhamlets.sch.uk if you have any specific dietary requirements)
