Webinar 5 - Designing a supportive curriculum in maths and English for lower attainers

Maths and English

This interactive webinar will examine a range of practical strategies practitioners can adopt to design a supportive curriculum in maths and English that will encourage lower attainers to persevere and to make good progress. We will examine the evidence about what works and share positive experiences with other practitioners. We will pay attention to the difference between providing a framework for learning and slavishly following exam criteria and past question revision.
