Curriculum (all phases)

  • Digital education platform hub
    The Department for Education expects all schools to use a digital platform to provide remote education for pupils who cannot be in school due to coronavirus restrictions. To help you meet this expectation, you can apply for DfE-funded support to get set up on a free-to-use platform: G Suite for Education or Office 365 Education. Learn what these platforms can do for you and use our impartial feature comparison to help you make a call, then apply for funded support.
  • Feature comparison: Google Workspace for Education and Office 365 Education
    If you're thinking about switching your digital learning platform, compare Google and Microsoft's key features so you can make an informed decision about which to go for. Remind yourself what your current platform can do, and see if you could use it better when pupils are self-isolating or learning from home.
  • G Suite for Education: instructions for pupils, parents and staff
    Share our factsheets for Google Classroom (part of G Suite for Education) with your pupils, parents and staff, so they can easily get set up and start engaging if they need to self-isolate.
  • Alternative provision: curriculum requirements and examples
    Alternative provision (AP) settings, including pupil referral units (PRUs), aren't required to follow the National Curriculum, but they do have to provide a good alternative curriculum. Find out what this includes, and see examples of curriculum offers from PRUs and AP academies.
