Presentation from the Wiltshire Geography Conference - June 2008


  • 1. Geography conference The Big Picture


  • The new secondary curriculum is more than just the revised programmes of study.At its heart is a new curriculum planning and design approach that aims to promote:
  • Increased flexibility to make the curriculum more coherent for learners
  • Opportunity to tailor/customise/localise to make more impact on the learner
  • Whole curriculum design (aims, subjects, skills, personal development, cross-curricular dimensions)


  • To support this schools are being encouraged to consider their curriculum in the context of the whole learning experience of children and not just the lessons.
  • With this in mind three core questions will be at the heart of the delivery of materials, briefings and the programme as a whole:
  • What are we trying to achieve?
  • How can we organise the learning?
  • How are we achieving our aims?


  • Reflecting these approaches and the core aims of the curriculum there is a new layout for subject programmes of study:
  • Importance statement
  • Key concepts
  • Key processes
  • Range of content
  • Curriculum opportunities
  • implementing the new curriculum is intended to be awhole school process
