Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Improving our Curriculum

The main area for improvement identified by Ofsted is our quality of education.  Under their new inspection framework (introduced in September 2019) Ofsted inspections now make 'deep dives' into any two foundation subjects (such as Science, History and PE), as well as Maths and Literacy.

Like many other primary schools around the country, we need to improve the consistency across the school, and pupils' progress, in all foundation subjects.  This means that our teachers - each now the curriculum leader in several subjects - have more planning time and greater resources to improve our curriculum delivery.

Here on our website, you can see:

  • In overall terms, our intent for the whole curriculum
  • For one featured subject - starting with Geography - how our planning is progressing through Ofsted's journey from Intent to Implementation to Impact
