This week Dale is joined by Carol Allen & John Galloway to discuss the pro’s and con’s of a fixed curriculum.

The curriculum in schools is supposed to be broad and balanced, but it often isn’t. Schools are sometimes only focusing on areas they are held to account for. One thing that has been eating away at the over the last few years is the four broad areas of need and the lack of focus on these areas in schools, in a number of ways. We will come back to this later, lets start at the beginning with children being entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum. Where is it going wrong?

Carol is an education advisor for ICT and Inclusion in particular supporting the London Grid For Learning and Hartlepool LA. She was named one of the top ten educators for 2018 in the field of educational technology. This was down to all her amazing work on inclusion. John is a specialist in the use of technology to improve educational opportunities for children and young people with special educational needs. He spends the majority of his time working with Tower Hamlets LA, but also does lots of working as a writer, consultant and trainer.
