DEVELOPING THE ARTS CURRICULUM

OR WHY NOW IS THE TIME TO PLAN FOR A NEW CURRICULUM WITH THE ARTS AT ITS HEART


The rapidly developing new emphasis on the curriculum is a great opportunity to debate the place of arts within it. A proper process is required to develop the curriculum appropriately for each school.


As we discussed in our previous blog, Ofsted has recently announced that its proposed new inspection framework will place much greater emphasis on the curriculum, its intent, implementation and impact. Not surprisingly, Arts People supports the change in focus suggested by Ofsted and thinks the new emphasis can only improve the way schools support children and young people to develop.
