Leading On - Curriculum and Timetabling

Designing a curriculum plan and creating a timetable have long seemed like a mystery for many inexperienced and aspiring senior leaders.  This does not need to be the case.  

This session will dispel myths around curriculum planning, and how that translates into writing an ‘intelligent’ timetable, to maximise outcomes and impact positively on behaviour.

Gary has written timetables for several large London secondary schools, using a range of software packages.  Gary will draw on this experience to provide an understanding of what to consider when developing an effective curriculum plan, and how to write a timetable that works for your school.

During the webinar, Gary will explore:
  • designing a curriculum plan
  • creating pathways at Key Stage 4 and blocking at Key Stage 5
  • the ‘timetabler’s timetable’
  • curriculum-led staffing
  • resourcing and contact time
  • understanding the place of rotations in Key Stage 3
The session will include opportunities to ask questions and develop a solution-focused approach to challenges faced by novice timetablers. The session will not include training on the use of specific software.

£50+VAT for a single webinar, plus up to three people can attend live.
The cost includes a copy of the resources and recording.

Participants will: 

  • learn how to design a curriculum plan
  • understand the importance of the ‘timetabler’s timetable’
  • plan staffing and resourcing to deliver an ‘intelligent’ timetable
There will also be the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas with other attendees.

Suitable for the following roles in secondary and all-through settings, and MATs and SATs:

  • Deputy Head/Vice Principal 
  • Assistant Head/Assistant Principal          
  • Aspiring leaders 

To attend this webinar live, you will need to ensure you have access to a computer or device that meets the Zoom system requirements.

If you cannot attend live you will receive a copy of the recording, links to any resources discussed, and the opportunity to submit questions.
