Ark Curriculum Plus is the curriculum and assessment strand of Ark’s work in school improvement. Its aim is to create an integrated curriculum and assessment provision for Ark schools which supports effective learning and exceptional outcomes, based upon strong principles of learning and curriculum design. ACP integrates an aligned approach to curriculum delivery through shared progression maps and curriculum resources with a robust shared assessment cycle. It also recognises training in effective curriculum delivery and the ownership of this work through strong subject communities as core components of its work.
We are currently looking for a primary mathematics lead to join Ark Curriculum Plus and provide leadership for the ACP work in their discipline. This involves the creation and development of highly effective subject communities, expert knowledge of best practice in their subject, curriculum development, quality assurance and review, full responsibility for subject assessments and leadership on curriculum implementation across the network.
The postholder has responsibility to plan in partnership with the subject community, seek agreement for curriculum plans by the appropriate Central senior leader and then take ownership for bringing agreed actions to fruition.
The post is based centrally at Ark’s Holborn office but will also involve some time visiting schools around the network.
