This episode identifies the key aspects of effective and purposeful curriculum evaluation in primary schools, looking at curriculum development, teacher workload, supporting disadvantaged pupils, meeting Ofsted expectations, and more.

The discussion involves three experienced primary school leaders who offer us their tenets of best practice for how we can ensure our curriculum is high-quality and working for our pupils.

How do we achieve consistency across the primary school? How can we be sure that our curriculum caters for a broad ability range and also our most disadvantaged pupils? How do we monitor the effectiveness of teaching and its impact on learning and standards? How do we use pupil and parent voice?

And how do we evidence that we know our curriculum is high-quality and effective, not least for Ofsted. Our guests have recent experience of Ofsted and as part of the discussion we touch upon meeting inspection curriculum expectations.
