Unpicking the Issues: Securing a Broad & Balanced Curriculum in Y1 – London Centre*

Course description

Rescheduled date for Autumn

Ensuring that all aspects of the KS1 curriculum are effectively taught and that key skills are embedded in order for children to make at least good progress from their starting points is an ongoing challenge. At the same time we know that children at this key stage learn most effectively when given opportunities to make links, explore and think critically. To successfully unpick this, interpret the learning and use this information to accurately assess requires skilful observation.

During this inspiring course, delegates will be supported to find ways to manage these challenges; exploring how a combination of adult-led, carefully planned provision and opportunities for child-initiated learning can bring about successful outcomes. Time will also be given to create an action plan unique to the needs of your school.


  • Clarity of how to develop KS1 provision that supports the whole curriculum and ensures progression.
  • An understanding of how ‘incidental learning’ can be used to meet curriculum objectives.
  • Greater confidence in how to accurately use observation to support the assessment process.
