Episode 04: How to ensure coverage with a broad and balanced curriculum

Episode 4 of The Curriculum is available for you to listen to now. This time, I’m joined by Catherine Scutt, Amy McCaw and Laura Bell, all Curriculum Consultants here at Cornerstones. We’re talking about the idea of a broad and balanced curriculum again, this time in the context of covering everything you need to in the national curriculum.

From the effect on timetabling to running specialist curriculum weeks, we look what schools can do to achieve a broad and balanced curriculum while ensuring appropriate coverage. It’s all about being flexible, careful planning and working together as a whole school.

Don’t forget, if you enjoyed the show, we’d love it if you passed it on to a friend of colleague who might also be interested. You can also leave a positive review of The Curriculum on iTunes, which really helps spread the word.
