A Curriculum Fit For Purpose

The Learning Challenge Curriculum has been created with a strong sense of enquiry at its heart. The question-led units encourage pupils to research and present information taking full account of their ability to retain key knowledge and skills for the long term. It uses the National Curriculum as its reference point, but also takes account of pupils’ context, including their locality. Schools and academies are encouraged to use the materials provided as a starting point to enable them to create a curriculum that is bespoke to them.

Nurseries, Primary Schools and Middle Schools

For the past few years we have followed Focus Education’s Learning Challenge Curriculum for Science, History and Geography and we absolutely love it! It’s super engaging, allows for challenge and most importantly is fun for us to teach!!! Would never look back now!

"I would just like to say how inspired I was today (as was my colleague) by the 'challenge curriculum'. So much so, that I went straight back into school and discussed this with our head, who, after my excited ranting about how amazing I believe taking this approach to the curriculum could be for our school, also feels that this is something we should definitely explore further!"

"All staff are thrilled with the Learning Challenge Curriculum as a resource, and having you to give it background and context was amazing. We worked yesterday on developing our planning ideas, combined with a recovery curriculum, specifically designed for our children in September. Staff are genuinely enthused by the curriculum content and I know this will ‘rub off’ and inspire our children."
