Nicol Mere Curriculum Overview – a knowledge based curriculum (draft see Ofsted inspection handbook 165)
Throughout the academic year 2018-19, we will be reviewing, amending and updating our vision for the curriculum and the impact it will have on our pupils. From September 2019, Ofsted will have a new inspection framework which will put even more emphasis on the need to have an outstanding school curriculum. During this school year, we will further clarify the Intent / Implementation / Impact of our curriculum. We will strive to maintain high academic standards in the 3 R's, and this will be complemented with an enriched, broad, progressive and knowledge-based curriculum. Knowledge will make it easier for pupils to learn - "knowledge does not just fill buckets, it lights fires".
