"How to sequence the Curriculum to optimise learning for all pupils"
This article will explore the importance of a well sequenced curriculum in Primary and Secondary schools in achieving positive outcomes for all pupils.

Since the release of the new Ofsted framework in 2019 educators in England have been talking about the 3 ‘1’s” – Intent, Implementation and Impact. The quality of education measure now used in inspections looks at how curriculum, teaching and assessment come together to set high expectations for all pupils and the broader curriculum offerings which are available for pupils.
