A detailed look at what curriculum mapping should look like for the foundation subjects, based on the expectations laid out in the Education Inspection Framework and National Curriculum. This session looks at what we mean by 'end points', 'substantive concepts', 'disciplinary knowledge' and 'essential knowledge'. There will be information for school leaders and governors about articulating your curriculum and the kinds of strategic questions that governors should be equipped to answer. There will also be some guidance on the level of knowledge required by curriculum leaders to be well prepared for their conversations with inspectors and a useful audit document to allow those leaders to prepare themselves adequately for inspection and evaluate the effectiveness of their own subject.
