At a time of renewed focus on the schools curriculum, Roy Blatchford has brought together some of the sharpest thinkers in education in a brilliant mixture of both practical and conceptual essays about what makes for a positive primary curriculum, 4-11. Perfectly timed to reflect the new Ofsted framework, the contributions reflect a range of thinking, planning and delivery, as schools do it now and will for the future. It is a compendium of proven practice, offering tips to less experienced/adventurous middle and senior leaders. Featuring contributions from: Katherine Benson; Kate Dethridge; Koulla Anslow; Mary Myatt; Aidan Severs; Marc Rowland; Siobhan Horisk; Claire Lotriet; Kate Atkins; Tim Coulson; David Ingham; Lilian Bell; Sean O'Regan; Colin Lofthouse; Janine Ryan; Simon Knight; Penny Slater.
