The aims of the Schemes of Work project have been

  • to build on the collaborative work of Penny Lacey and Swiss Cottage School;
  • to write outstanding practice schemes of work for non National Curriculum ‘areas of learning’;
  • to involve outstanding teachers in good and outstanding schools throughout England and Wales;
  • to produce schemes of work that are available to all schools on a cost recovery (not for profit) basis through the Equals website;
  • to share best practice within a broad band of stakeholders, including both the DfE and Ofsted.

EQUALS Semi-formal (SLD/MLD) Curriculum

The general principles governing the schemes of work are that they:

  • are developmental in nature and open to personalisation – they start at the beginning of the individual pupil’s learning journey and aim for the highest level of independence possible;
  • cover all stages of education from 2 to 25 (and beyond) but are not directly related to either age or key stage. Learners fit into them where they will according to their individual abilities, interests and learning journey;
  • are not related to the National Curriculum, though the common language of the P scales is occasionally used for ease of understanding.
