From September 2019 schools, colleges and training providers will need to be able to demonstrate their curriculum planning to OfSTED during the inspection of the Quality of Education judgement.
We have created a Curriculum Planning Checklist for users to evaluate their planning process for each programme they are delivering. This is a free checklist which can be used as many times as you like. Once completed, you will have the have the completed checklist emailed to you as a PDF report.
OfSTED’s working definition of a curriculum is:
The curriculum is a framework for setting out the aims of a programme of education, including the knowledge and skills to be gained at each stage (intent); for translating that framework over time into a structure and narrative, within an institutional context (implementation) and for evaluating what knowledge and skills learners have gained against expectations (impact/achievement)
Curriculum intent is the framework for setting out the aims of a programme of learning, including the knowledge and skills to be gained at each stage
Curriculum implementation is the translation of the framework over time into a structure and narrative within an institutional context
