Whilst it’s down to academies and Trusts themselves to create their own curriculum intent, we work alongside our partners to ensure this is communicated clearly and consistently.
One effective medium for communicating curriculum intent is through professional and engaging film content. Our Media Team captures a blend of ‘talking head’ interviews with staff and footage of the curriculum in action. This allows stakeholders to hear about the academy/Trust’s curriculum intent and see how this is applied in practice.
It is a statutory requirement that academy websites include a section on their curriculum intent and a breakdown of subjects covered. We provide support to make this information clear and easy to find, through creative copy, design and film elements. Our multisite offer also ensures that, where applicable, curriculum information is consistent across all academy websites within a Trust to demonstrate the unity of intent and expectations.
A really key element of a strong curriculum intent is clear sequencing of information, allowing students to build on their learning in a logical manner. We have worked with a range of our partners to design learning journey documents which visualise this sequencing for all subjects. The end result is a set of attractive, branded documents or graphics which demonstrate how the curriculum is coherently sequenced to support learning.
