This workshop will be led by Clare Duffy, a senior leader from Uppingham Community College who has been working to create the conditions for staff to authentically develop its curriculum provision. The practical workshop will look at the lessons learned so far from this work, including a focus on the leadership strategies used at Uppingham Community College to tweak and refine the curriculum without overly focusing on the Ofsted inspection framework. Other areas of discussion will include how the school has structured its directed time to give departments more time together to jointly plan their curriculum frameworks and resources.
