Ofsted has published the second in a series of reviews into different subjects across the curriculum.

Ofsted says - ‘This is only the start of our work in this area, though. As a force for improvement, we will be publishing a series of documents from April 2021, including:
Research reviews – these will collate currently available research evidence. We will consider what published research evidence tells us about a high-quality education in each subject
Subject reports – we will inform leaders, teachers and tutors, parents and policymakers about what we have learned about the state of the nation when it comes to the quality of school curriculum in a range of subjects
To carry out this work and lead on our curriculum thinking in schools, we have set up a curriculum unit. We have been recruiting subject leads for a range of subjects, starting with national curriculum subjects and religious education. These subject experts will be leading this work, along with our research team.’

Get Hounslow Reading – “There can be no doubt of the enthusiasm of Hounslow teachers and impact of their hard work on growing a Reading for Pleasure practice in their schools over this academic year. Many teachers said that the time to talk and share practice was what they valued most highly.” Charlotte Raby – Programme Facilitator
