More than 5,000 teachers and school leaders heard how to make the most of Oak’s curriculum plan in webinars for the primary, secondary and specialist sectors held last week. You can watch the webinars online to understand how schools might complement their existing plans.

Oak’s free, optional resources will be available throughout the next academic year to help schools provide as seamless transition as possible between teaching pupils in school and at home. Wherever possible teachers will be able to download and edit materials to support planning.

Nearly 10,000 lessons will be published by the end of August. Oak’s 40 subject leaders collaborated with teachers, subject associations and curriculum experts to create an inclusive and flexible curriculum.

Matt Hood, Principal of Oak National Academy, said:

“We know next year is uncertain and challenging. We're listening to what schools need to try and play a small part in supporting them.

“We want to be there as an optional contingency plan and make any transition between in-school and remote teaching as seamless as possible.

“Our team of teachers are recording nearly 10,000 lessons ahead of September.  Teachers will then be able to re-order, download and edit our resources, to make sure they support schools' own plans.

“We've been delighted with the initial response, with over 5,000 teachers joining our webinars last week.”
