Curriculum Leaders from UK schools develop new planning and assessment frameworks

Posted on: 22 Oct 2014

As part of a series of group meetings this term, Curriculum Leaders and senior staff from schools across the Bellevue Education group benefited from a recent session to share resources and to develop common planning frameworks.

The aim of the meeting was to discuss the importance of data tracking and moderation in producing reliable pupil data, as well as working towards an assessment framework, which can be shared by schools across the group.

Adam Dyson, Year 6 Teacher and Maths Coordinator at Forest Park Preparatory School, said “The Curriculum meeting was an invaluable experience, which enabled me to share and listen to ideas from experienced teachers. We discussed schemes of work currently being implemented and more importantly the impact of these schemes of work on the children. This was extremely beneficial for me being reasonably new to teaching, but more importantly will be instrumental on the pupils’ learning and their level of attainment at Forest Park.”

“The discussion provided me with an informative way to efficiently find effective resources that have already made a difference in other Bellevue schools.  After sharing the ideas with my colleagues at Forest Park, we started to explore our English resources, focusing on supportive groups for Phonics within Key Stage 2. We have already updated our comprehension, SPaG , Maths and Science with the new Collins scheme in line with the revised curriculum. It was useful to deliberate over the effectiveness of these resources at the meeting and it has also confirmed that we have made a step in the right direction.”

Steven Wade, Bellevue Education’s UK Schools Director, said “I was delighted to see such a strong and positive response following our INSET session with Nigel Battey, which took place at the start of the year. Both sessions were highly productive and showed how well the schools have moved forward with recent curriculum initiatives, thinking carefully about the changes that will have the greatest impact on children’s learning.”

“In addition to our Bellevue Schools we were delighted to have our partners from the Bellevue Place Education Trust schools at the meeting and we look forward to working closely with them in the future.”
