Curriculum Research In Schools

The request was partially successful.

Dear Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills,

Re. HMCI speech on curriculum published on 18th September 2018, (source: https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/h... under the sub-heading "Notes on research" it says:

"Twenty-three schools were purposively selected for phase 2 of the curriculum study" which took place between "January and March 2018".

"These schools were judged good or outstanding at their last full inspection and were understood to be ‘particularly invested in curriculum design’. Schools meeting this criteria were identified through published inspection reports, recent media stories and our advisory curriculum panel. "

Please could you share:
1. the names of the 23 schools - not the Bold Beginning schools from phase 1.
2. what metrics you used to determine how well schools were "particularly invested in curriculum design"

Yours faithfully,
Ross McGill
