Curriculum (all phases)

For information and guidance about the curriculum offer schools are expected to provide, please see the DfE webpages here. They include information about the ‘national curriculum’ for England to be taught in all local-authority-maintained schools. Requirements to teach religious education (RE) and sex and relationship education (SRE) are also explained.

Ofsted schools research: Ofsted carries out research alongside its main inspection programme to look at specific issues, subjects or policies in more detail. Curriculum intent, implementation and impact have been a key focus over the past few years. The new Education Inspection Framework (EIF) has been informed by this work.

Dear teacher,

Hopefully, since I last wrote to you, your students have had a chance to begin creating their poems to enter into Lichfield Cathedral’s poetry competition The Word. But I do understand that the end of term is a busy period for teachers and students alike, so don’t worry if you’ve not had a chance yet. There is still time: the deadline for entries is the 3 October 19, National Poetry Day.

As you prepare for the next academic year, perhaps you could think about including this into your lesson planning – it would be a great way to start the new term and to engage your students in poetry.
