The nature of curriculum and what ‘quality’ means in that context, has stimulated much discussion in schools over recent months.  This course will provide subject leaders with an opportunity to use the OfSTED terms, ‘intent’, ‘implementation’ and ‘impact’, as they review the existing science curriculum in their schools and plan for its development.

Just what do these terms mean and how can their use help us to reflect on and advance current science practice? 


The relationship between the science curriculum and wider, whole-school curriculum priorities will be considered. Science has the capacity to support and contribute to addressing wider priorities for learners and making such opportunities explicit can be enormously helpful.  


  • A variety of subject curriculum concerns will also have a part to play, including

    ·        establishing a clear vision for science

    ·        building children’s science capital

    ·        developing quality vocabulary as a means of communicating and applying subject understanding.
