At The Arbib Eduction Trust we have ten years’ experience of a broad and balanced curriculum, driven by our museum learning focus. After a recent inspection, Ofsted gave The Langley Academy Primary an Outstanding and said:
"[The curriculum is] … highly engaging, creative and improves pupils’ knowledge very quickly. The school ethos of ‘curiosity, exploration and discovery’ is certainly brought to life!"
This conference will explore how cultural capital and a knowledge curriculum can achieve outstanding outcomes at primary and secondary. You will:
Develop and plan activities with cultural sector partners that inspire teaching and whole child outcomes;
Try planning tools to clarify the intention, implementation and impact of your activities;
Share your own experience and hear case studies from across the Arbib Education Trust about developing a curriculum where subjects work together to deepen knowledge and give a vivid immediacy to learning.
“The school’s focus on museum learning gives pupils a rich range of experiences that bring the curriculum to life.”
