Head Teachers Update

Hello and welcome to the Headteacher’s update.

Despite Brexit taking up the lion’s share of the news lately, there are some planned changes to the focus on schools.

Due for release in September 2019, the new OFSTED framework, promises to shift the spotlight from pupil outcomes (exam results, end of EYFS data, Ks1 and KS2 SATS, Phonics Screening tests etc) to the real substance of education- a school’s curriculum - with a new ‘quality of education’ judgement.

This is something to be very much applauded. Here at Irthington the whole focus of our curriculum planning is to plan and deliver a rich and rounded curriculum that actually means something, and is relevant to, the children we teach. We pack the activities with hands on and practical approaches, plan in visits to bring learning alive. For your reference I have included our rationale for the curriculum we implemented in September 2018.
