Curriculum and Curriculum Intent: How do you know that you have an effective Early Years Curriculum? (03 Jun 2023)


Curriculum and Curriculum Intent: How do you know that you have an effective Early Years Curriculum?  

Please ignore the advertised date. We are currently gauging interest and are asking you to join the waiting list. We will then be in touch once a date has been confirmed.

Ofsted’s 3 I’s (intent, implementation and impact) have placed a huge spotlight on the word curriculum... but it’s very hard to talk about our curriculum intent, if we haven’t thought about the body of knowledge, skills and experiences that we want children to have during their time with us.

How can we talk knowledgeably about what we intend to do with our curriculum if we haven’t got one?

Having a curriculum enables us to think about what children need to know, understand and be able to do once they leave us. It provides a framework that helps to organise our thoughts about what is important for children at different ages and stages of development.

This two-and-a-half-hour workshop we will unpick what a curriculum is and how we might go about creating one that reflects the needs of our children.

During our time together we will:

•       Help you to understand what a curriculum is and what it needs to contain (including statutory content)

•       Support you to understand the things that you have already done that make a contribution to your curriculum

•       Help you start to map out the content of your curriculum (what you want children to know, understand and be able to do)

•       Think about how practitioners will use this document

This training will give you an understanding of what a curriculum is and how you might go about developing your own curriculum, whereas, the session 'Developing a Curriculum for Your Children' is a workshop where you will be supported to develop your own curriculum - you will walk away at the end of the day with your curriculum in your hand. 

Delivered by: Pennie Akehurst who has previously delivered our Ofsted training, EYFS Changes training and who has worked in early years and childcare for over 30 years and now runs her own consultancy company

Date: to be confirmed  Time: 9:30am - 12:00pm

Venue: on-line (Zoom)
