Description

About the course

This course tackles head-on our understanding and assumptions about our low-attaining pupils. We will consider the causes for low attainment, how we overcome these, and what it is that we believe pupils are entitled to leave school knowing.

We are bound by law to provide all pupils with an ‘entitlement curriculum’ but what does this mean in practice for our lowest attainers? How does an ‘entitlement curriculum’ fit with a knowledge-rich curriculum? How does a knowledge-rich curriculum benefit low attainers and help them to achieve in school and beyond? How do schools set achievable standards for pupils without placing limits on them? Ultimately, to what extent does an ‘entitlement curriculum’ define an achievable minimum standard of education for all, including our lowest attainers without it becoming mere fantasy?

The course will draw on a range of research about the psychology of memory, vocabulary acquisition, and SEND, as well as looking at the practical steps taken by school leaders and teachers. We will also consider the role of family and the community in helping to support low attainers and raise their expectations.

Who should attend?

All primary and secondary teachers, especially those with responsibility for teaching and learning, curriculum, raising achievement, and SEND.
