Curriculum after closures: what should schools prioritise?


We’re proud to be working with partners from across the sector to deliver the Summer Series: a programme of free webinars to support teachers and school leaders through, and beyond, the coronavirus outbreak.

In this roundtable, Ambition Institute’s Dean of Impact Governance, Melissa Thomlinson, leads a discussion on the important role curriculum can play in helping schools respond to pupils’ needs following school closures Melissa is joined by:

  • David Benson, Principal at Kensington Aldridge Academy
  • Dr Helen Drury, Director of Curriculum Programmes at Ark
  • Andy Wolfe, Deputy CEO at the Church of England Education Office
  • Elliot Costas-Walker, Assistant Trust Principal at Forward As One Academy Trust

Watch back for:

  • Expert knowledge on curriculum design and ensuring it is resilient to further disruption
  • Discussion on how curriculum can be used to respond to the needs of pupils as they return to the classroom
  • Insights from teachers and school leaders on how they are responding to curriculum challenges
