Intent Implementation and Impact!

This day will explore how leaders (school/curriculum/subject) can demonstrate they have built ‘a curriculum with appropriate coverage, content, structure and sequencing;’ how it is implemented in the classroom and its impact on learning.

Learning Outcomes:

Delegates will:

explore radically different approaches to non-subject specific and pre-specific learning curricula

understand the key curriculum needs of pupils with profound and complex learning needs

understand how to profile your current cohort of pupils learning needs and use the information to inform the design of your curriculum; including introducing a sensory profile tool and the importance of thinking skills in learning

explore what engagement in learning means and how to bring this about

explore the importance of play in learning and the neuro-science, biology and behaviour theories that support such a curriculum model

develop an awareness of the 2019 EIF and the implications for schools delivering a curriculum for learners with profound and severe complex needs
