Event description

Description

What is the role of knowledge in the English curriculum and how should this knowledge be chosen and sequenced?

In this curriculum symposium we will be discussing the complexities of ‘English' as a subject with multi-disciplinary roots and exploring the way this unfolds in our schools both at primary and secondary.

Hearing from school teachers, leaders and curriculum thinkers about their curriculum journey, the choices they have made in their English curriculum and how these have been enacted in the classroom; we will consider what it means to design and teach a knowledge-rich English curriculum.

Confirmed speakers include Summer Turner, Claire Heald, Matthew Carnaby, Lia Martin, Elisabeth Bowling, Claire Stoneman, and Bennie Kara.

The venue

The symposium is being held in Norwich, a UNESCO City of Literature, home to the University of East Anglia's world-famous creative writing MA and one of the UK's busiest public libraries, and the location of the writing of the first book in English authored by a woman. The venue is Jane Austen College, a free school that specialises in English and the humanities.

The college is a 15-minute walk from Norwich train station. There is public parking nearby at St Andrew's car park, and a Premier Inn next to the school site, with many other hotels in the city centre.
