Exploring curriculum intent, implementation and impact.
Steve and Julie look at a curriculum model based on play and how it can be adapted for different school settings. They explain the neuroscience, biology and behaviour theories that support such a curriculum model. How this model supports the intent, implementation and impact model of curriculum; in line with the proposed 2019 EIF, will be considered.
The day will also look at assessment methods in-line with the review of the pilot of ‘the seven aspects of engagement’ following the Rochford Review. The role of environments to support and enhance learning will be explored.
